The majority of the famous early Egyptologists (the big names) were trained in classical Greek, and some of them would write letters / notes to each other by composing classical Greek verse. It was interesting to come to Egyptology from a similar background. The subjects seem distinct to us now in our textbooks, classrooms and libraries, but when a papyrus was unearthed in Egypt, it could have been in any of a number of languages including Greek, Coptic, Demotic or Middle Egyptian. I don't have much knowledge of Demotic at all, and my Greek is only at bachelor's degree level. But those early "Egyptologists" worked competently with a wide range of texts - of course some were better at different aspects of the work.
If you would like to discuss Egyptology or mummification as a subject in itself - rather than just a passing allusion or joke then

I suggest you apply yourself to seriously learning Greek. Put in the time and effort to learn something worthwhile.
