Its daughter language, Coptic, died out in the 17th century AD.
It thus has one of the longest histories of any language.
There is a vast literature, both secular and religious.
From 650 BC the classicizing tendencies of the scribes gave way to Demotic Egyptian, and Demotic inscriptions are found until the mid- 5th century AD.
Coptic became dominant in the 4th century AD, but started to decline after the introduction of Arabic in the 7th century.
Egyptian inscriptions were written in hieroglyphs.
There were also two cursive scripts based on the hieroglyphs: Hieratic, used for religious documents; and Demotic, for ordinary documents.
Coptic was written in the Greek alphabet, with seven extra letters taken from Demotic.
