It appears that the misleading quality of comments from Greek and Roman writers about hieroglyphs came about, at least in part, as a response to the changed political situation.

Decipherment of hieroglyphic writing Ibn Wahshiyya's translation of the Ancient Egyptian hieroglyph alphabet Knowledge of the hieroglyphs had been lost completely by the medieval period.
Early attempts at decipherment are due to Dhul-Nun al-Misri and Ibn Wahshiyya 9th and 10th century, respectively. The most famous of the early "decipherers" was Athanasius Kircher.
In his Lingua Aegyptiaca RestitutaKircher called hieroglyphics "this language hitherto unknown in Europe, in which there are as many pictures as letters, as many riddles as sounds, in short as many mazes to be escaped from as mountains to be climbed".
While some of his notions are long discredited, portions of his work have been valuable to later scholars, and Kircher helped pioneer Egyptology as a field of serious study. All medieval and early modern attempts were hampered by the fundamental assumption that hieroglyphs recorded ideas and not the sounds of the language.
As no bilingual texts were available, any such symbolic 'translation' could be proposed without the possibility of verification. As the stone presented a hieroglyphic and a demotic version of the same text in parallel with a Greek translation, plenty of material for falsifiable studies in translation was suddenly available.
