(1790-1832). French scholar, one of a number brought to Egypt under the French occupation of Napoleon Bonaparte, who accomplished the decipherment of the Egyptian hieroglyphic writing system. His work, which was published in 1822, was based largely on the Rosetta Stone, which has inscriptions in Greek, hieroglyphs, and in the Egyptian demotic script.
