The Cuneiform Rosetta Stone
Three stone tablets, quartzite-limestone composite, approx 10 x 5 cm (2 x 4 inches) with translation and letter by letter cuneiform transliteration for each.
A unique set of tablets produced by Italian cuneiform scholars in the 1950’s as a study tool for identifying the main types of cuneiform.
Recording excerpts from the well-known King Darius monument at Behistun in Iran, the tablets illustrate the evolution of cuneiform script giving clear examples of the three main types of cuneiform used in the ancient world.
Darius left behind a remarkable tri-lingual carving high on Mount Behistun in western Iran where the ancient road connected Babylonia and Media. The inscription includes three versions of the same text, written in three different cuneiform scripts and languages, Old Persian, Elamite and Babylonian.
This monumental carving became the “Rosetta Stone” of cuneiform. In 1835 British army officer Sir Henry Rawlinson risked his life to scale the vertical cliff-face and transcribe the text. By 1843, Rawlinson and other scholars finally deciphered the previously lost ancient script.$59.95AUD plus P&H Quote CUNEIFORMROSETTA

Why don't we have an ONLINE CHECKOUT?
Due to the nature of our business, we have chosen not to use an online check out. We do have access to one but due to the nature of our product range and varying shipping costs we have chosen not to use it. Let me give you an example. Our products vary in size and weight considerably, from a small papyrus kit to a weighty full size Rosetta Stone. We now ship all over the world, and hence the cost to ship such a huge range of varying products to a wide range of destinations is not a simple one. So what we have chosen to do is, to ship to you at the best possible price for your destination. Within Australia we use couriers as much as possible, but couriers can become expensive in certain areas and hence Australia Post becomes a better option. There are even some times when we deliver products in person. So to purchase an item or if you simply want to know the shipping costs, either use our contact page to send us your inquiry and we will get back to you with the best possible shipping costs. We can then invoice you using a regular invoicing system, that allows you to pay by credit card or Australia Post Money order, or in the case of Schools we do accept Business cheques. We can invoice you with Paypal which is a great secure way to pay with your credit card or we can send you the information to allow you to process your payment with your credit card via Stratapay. With Stratapay you simply phone your credit card information to their office (for the price of a local call within Australia) and we dispatch your goods as soon as the payment appears in our system.(Usually within two working days). You can phone your credit card information through to us and we process you shipment immediately. Products that are in stock are shipped immediately. International orders usually take 7-10 days.
If you have any queries about any of our products or payment methods give us a call:
