The adventure of the writing starts with a stone worked by the man. Scientists had only rare copies of inscriptions brought back of Persepolis by Pietro Della Valle and a German geographer Carsten Niebuhr. But they all were illegibles. At this time, in 1802 a French botanist called Michaux brought back from Baghdad, a stone that he bought on the market. Like this, prehistory is concluded, leaving the writing takes part in the History.
