That 2 pyramids claimed as built....may not be.
Robert Temple link.
The Djedefre assigned pyramid which it may not be...
He might not have built that either....he may have adopted it and built the mud brick
Mortuary temple where his Statue was found.
The previous post notes the contradiction of a ruler building a Mastaba while his brother
Then after the brother dies...
He Changes his name....and suddenly has a Pyramid ( Khafre )
Doing the math for time to build is also troublesome.
Snefru supposedly builds 3 huge pyramids.
Djedefre reigns 8- 11 years...and gets a Pyramid at Abu Rawash.
Egyptology pushes 1 2 3 at Giza in succession.
Yet now we have Djedefre 18 times cartouche in a boat pit at a Pyramid his Father
Khufu is said to have built.
And while Khufu and Djedefre are ruling....
Mastabas are being built by Elites....and even Princes (Khafre)
an Alternative view is to consider no one's building Pyramids of the huge scale.
They adopt them....build mud brick and Stone Mortuary temples
Other periphery buildings
And build Mastabas.....which are the active tradition in early Dynastic which has
The Mesopotamian builder style signature to them.
