Thanks Merrell. My concern isn't whether Sitchin was right or not. My concern is simply the oddity of the singular "Kh-u-f-u" cartouche up in the rafters amidst all the other (literal) "Khnum-Khfu" cartouches up there. And I realize that some people insist that it actually says "Khnum-Khufu" but I'm talking about the physical graphics and not the currently accepted interpretation among Egyptologists. Yoshimura said he saw a cartouche of Khufu, and it wasn't on the wall within the pit as are the other 18 cartouches of Djedefre. Rather, he said it was found among the mineral dust that had accumulated between blocks as he removed one of the cover blocks.
Despite all the discussion here about that cartouche, no one has yet produced a single photo of it so we can see what variant it is. So far, all we have is Avry playing his cards close to the chest.

Thanks. It's not clear why Brian cited a website that makes no mention of the cartouche.
Regarding your link (above), I don't recall anyone here making any of those (Sitchin's) arguments to claim the cartouche might be a fraud.
How can any of us ever know, when all we can do is think?
