No, Audrey, here you go again.

Which is not the same as saying he was a contemporary of Khufu. Try learning the English language.

An ounce being an optimistic estimate of how much science (or philosophy of science) you’ve studied. So, Audrey, what exactly qualifies you to make such a judgement?

. . . or a gerund, let alone a toffee apple—which makes as much sense as what you’ve just said.
Thanks for confirming that you’re not equipped to discuss the question.
Let’s see that paragraph by Laurel Flentye in full:
A reassessment of the mastabas of Ankh-haf (G7510) and Akhethetep and Meretites (G7650) in the Eastern Cemetery at Giza is essential to a study of the development of art during the Fourth Dynasty. These two mastabas are located next to one another on the periphery of the eight twinmastabas, which form the original section of the Eastern Cemetery. George Andrew Reisner of the Harvard University-Museum of Fine Arts, Boston Expedition to Giza dated the construction of the mastabas of Ankh-haf (G7510) and Akhethetep and Meretites (G7650) to the reign of Khafra based on their locations outside of the eight twin-mastabas and their mastaba types (REISNER 1942: 28, 73, 84 (t), 148, 212 (4, 5). 308 (d. Ib,c). In fact, he considered their locations the next phase of development of the Eastern Cemetery (REISNER 1942: 73). However, the assignment of these two mastabas to the reign of Khafra following the construction of the eight twin-mastabas is not as definite as proposed by Reisner. Through an analysis of the architectural evidence, graffiti, titles, iconography, and style of the relief decoration and statuary, the mastabas of Ankh-haf (G7510) and Akhethetep and Meretites (G7650) may actually date earlier than the reign of Khafra. Stylistic analysis, in particular, suggests that this was a significant period of artistic development from the late reign of Khufu through Khafra, including Djedefra. Through reference to royal reliefs and statuary, the relief decoration in the mastabas of Ankh-haf (G7510) and Akhethetep and Meretites (G7650) reflects overall changes occurring during this period. In this respect, a reassessment of the architectural, inscriptional, iconographic, and stylistic evidence from the mastabas of Ankh-haf (G7510) and Akhethetep and Meretites (G7650) will contribute significantly to an understanding of the development of art during the Fourth Dynasty.
Further on, we find this:
. . . Jánosi believes that Ankh-haf may be of the “same generation” as Khufu, i.e. a “(half-) brother” or “relative of the same generation” (JÁNOSI 2005: 111). This would make Ankh-haf and his wife of a similar generation to Khufu with the location of their mastaba on the easternmost edge of the Eastern Cemetery providing an archjtecturaJ frame to the interior eight twin-mastabas in coordination with queens’ pyramids GI-a and GI-b.
Where did you imagine I got it from⸮ If you tried reading the material, you might learn something. Flentye argues at length that Reisner got it wrong, so collapsing all of this into what Reisner said is illiterate inanity.
