While British & French did indeed loot Egypt & other colonial possessions, the Rosetta Stone was looted from its original location in antiquity, possibly late antiquity,

Sorry? The Rosetta stone was carved in Egypt , by Egyptians was stolen and is now in the British Museum - so what is your point?

That Egypt changed over time and did not maintain its Ptolemaic monuments?

Wow never go to Italy (seen the Colosseum lately?), Greece (the Parthenon) France, The UK (have you seen Stonehenge?)China, Nigeria or er the world.

It was probably moved in late antiquity or during the Mameluk period, and was eventually used as building material in the construction of Fort Julien near the town of Rashid (Rosetta) in the Nile Delta. It was discovered there in July 1799 by French soldier Pierre-François Bouchard during the Napoleonic campaign i
