A rotating metal spinning keyring inspired by the iconic Rosetta Stone.

The Rosetta Stone has a fascinating history as it was originally discovered by soldiers in Napoleon's army in 1799, by which time all knowledge of the ancient Egyptian language had been lost for over 1,000 years. The known Greek section at the bottom of the stone helped scholars decipher the two Egyptian scripts ? the middle one written in cursive demotic script and the top version in ancient hieroglyphs. The text contains a decree, passed by priests in 196 BC, to honour King Ptolemy V for his services to Egypt.
