Trivia of the day: Hieroglyphs carried on in modified form, for a very long time indeed.

Egyptian hieroglyphs made way for Demotic, which lasted for 1000 years ’til the 5th century (mostly for tradition by then), as Coptic, which was a modification based on Greek started taking root in the 1st century.

Coptic lasted ’til the 17th century AD as a common tongue, and even to this day, can be found as a liturgical language (for tradition) in some Coptic Orthodox Churches, although, like almost all churches everywhere, the common tongue of the people in the area is most likely to be the language in use. But it’s still there.egyptzz
