The knowledge to read and write hieroglyphs was lost by AD, and would remain so until the s, when the Rosetta Stone was deciphered. It contains three parallel scripts — hieroglyphic, demotic, and Greek. The hieratic priestly and demotic popular scripts were more suited than hieroglyphs for use on papyrus, and existed alongside the other forms, especially in monumental and other formal writing. Please note that there is no standard system for transliteration.
