This Rosetta Stone wallet features the iconic script in white on a black background.

 

The Rosetta Stone has been housed at the British Museum since 1802, and is one of the Museum's best known exhibits. It was discovered in 1799, by which time all knowledge of the Ancient Egyptian language and writing had been lost for over 1,000 years; however, the Stone's inscription helped scholars to decipher the two Egyptian scripts - one written with hieroglyphs and one in the cursive demotic script - from the Greek section at the bottom.

 

The wallet opens out to reveal pockets for cards and notes, and fastens together for a slim, compact feel.
