“He discovered a cartouche from Abu Simbel in which he could identify the name of Ramses. Upon making this breakthrough, he rushed from his apartment, found his brother, cried, “Je tiens l’affaire!”—“I’ve got it!”—and dropped into a dead faint. In a letter dated September 27, 1822, Champollion wrote of his discovery to the Royal Academy of Inscriptions and Letters. And within two years he completed a Précis du Systeme Hieroglyphique, showing that the script was a mixture of ideographic and phonetic signs.”
Sharon Waxman, Loot: The Battle over the Stolen Treasures of the Ancient World
