Losing the Rosetta Stone?

According to the BBC, Egypt's head of antiquities, Dr Zahi Hawass, "will drop a demand for the permanent return of the Rosetta Stone if the British Museum agrees to loan it out".

The British Museum has said it would "consider the loan request".

One thing is certain: if the Stone ever goes to Egypt, there's no chance that it will be returned.
