James Henry Breasted was the first egyptologist to copy the inscription on the Shabaka Stone by hand, remarking that : "I have no doubt that with a better light than it is possible to get in the museum gallery, more could in places be gotten out."

the rosetta stone is an ancient Egyptian granodiorite stele inscribed with a decree issued at Memphis in 196 BC on behalf of King Ptolemy V. The decree appears in three scripts: the upper text is Ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs, the middle portion Demotic script, and the lowest Ancient Greek. Because it presents essentially the same text in all three scripts (with some minor differences among them), it provided the key to the modern understanding of Egyptian hieroglyphs.

The Rosetta Stone has the same inscription written in three languages; Ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs, Demotic, and Greek. Its discovery in 1799 was key to figuring out the hieroglyphic writing system
