Actually, to make it more Rosetta stonish, it should be in three steps:
1: An unknown language in an unknown alphabet (Egyptian in Heiratic)
2: An unknown language in a known alphabet (Egyptian in Coptic--Greek
3: A known language in a known alphabet (Greek in Greek).
Then, one would have to translate a completely different text in
condition 1 to show that one has succeeded.
