The Rosetta Stone

The Rosetta stone was discovered by a french soldier named lieutenant Pierre Bouchard. The Rosetta stone describes how a dude named King Ptolemy had passed laws to give money to priest kings, and in return the priests built giant statues of him. Imagine if someone built a statue of you for every temple and worshipped you 3 times a day! That would be pretty cool. The Rosetta stone had three languages, these were Greek, Hamitic, and Hieroglyphics.
