When we find something new at Giza, we announce it to the world. The Sphinx and the Pyramids are world treasures. We are the guardian’s of these treasures, but they belong to the world.

📍 Sphinx. Giza Pyramids. Egypt 🇪🇬

The Base of Menkaure’s Pyramid.

The bottom courses of granite 𓌳𓄿𓏏𓏋𓊌𓏫 “mAt” are visibly unfinished, probably halted in mid-work due to the death of the pharaoh 𓉐𓉼 “pr-eA” ‘Great House’. The pyramid’s 𓍋𓅓𓂋𓉴 “mr” date of construction is unknown, because Menkaure’s (𓇳𓏠𓂓) “mn-kA-re” ‘The established one of the ka of Ra’ reign has not been accurately defined, but it was probably completed in the 26th century BC.

It lies a few hundred yards southwest of its larger neighbours, the Pyramid of Khafre (𓇳𓈍𓆑) “hA-f-re” ‘He Appears as Ra’ and the Great Pyramid of Khufu (𓐍𓅱𓆑𓅱) “h-w-f-w” ‘He Protects Me’ in the Giza necropolis.

Attempted Demolition:

At the end of the twelfth century al-Malek al-Aziz Othman ben Yusuf, Saladin’s son and heir, attempted to demolish the pyramids, starting with Menkaure’s.𓏤

The workmen whom Al-Aziz had recruited to demolish the pyramid stayed at their job for eight months, but found it almost as expensive to destroy as to build. They could only remove one or two stones each day.𓏤

Some used wedges and levers to move the stones, while others used ropes to pull them down. When a stone fell, it would bury itself in the sand, requiring extraordinary efforts to free it.𓏤

Wedges were used to split the stones into several pieces, and a cart was used to carry it to the foot of the escarpment, where it was left. Due to such conditions, they could only damage the pyramid by leaving a large vertical gash in its north face.

“Wepwawet stands before the king, and offers him a crook and flail, and gives him the Breath of Life. Wepwawet, "of Upper and Lower Egypt, Controller of the Two Lands,” says, (I) come to thee, bearing life and dominion; mayest thou be young like Horus as king; I hand over to thee the sceptre and flail, and the beneficent office of Onnophris; may thy name endure by reason of what thou hast done. As long as the sky shall exist, thou shalt exist.“ He continues, "Receive for thyself the sceptre and flail which are in the hand of thy father, Osiris.” The King says,“….Menmaetre has appeared on the seat of Horus, pre-eminent in the House of the Morning, that he may guide all the living like Re, forever.”
