Origin[edit | edit source]

Not much is known about the Rosetta Stone. It was found by a French soldier during an Egyptian exposition by Napoleonic forces. The stone has three sets of writing inscribed onto it, but all telling the same story. On the top are Egyptian Hieroglyphs. In the middle is Coptic, the little used Ancient Egyptian cursive shorthand script, and at the bottom is Ancient Greek. It is thanks to the stone that archeologists now understand hieroglyphs.

Effects[edit | edit source]

Placing a hand onto the stone allows the user to speak, understand, and write in any language.

Collection[edit | edit source]

Collected by Warehouse 11 agents from Russia. Switched with a replica to avoid escalating conflicts with the French. Mentioned in passing during the tie-in novel A Touch of Fever.
