(Thanos):
The irony is that in Vyse's day, let alone for several decades after, most were of the mind that Khnum Khufu and Khufu were not the same person with Khnum Khufu being possibly a co-regent, a different pharoah, or maybe a god. One thing they would have been certain of is that Khnum Khufu was the wrong pharaoh to attribute the pyramid to. So for Vyse to have faked all of these means he would have put the wrong pharaoh's name all over the place then somehow had an epiphany at the 11th hour to forge the "right" one. And then two more for good measure.

Another thing I don't understand about this forgery business is that Vyse's exposure to both cartouches in relation to each other would have been Wadi Maghareh and that published from a book hot off the presses before his own discovery which he may or may not have ever seen:


There are no gang names here yet Vyse not only understood this nomenclature and practice, but had the wherewithal to include it with nearly all of the cartouches he faked whether Khnum Khufu or Khufu further making them unique to both? Quite a fellow this Vyse.

Not to mention this one 6ft away:

Which he covered with ancient mortar.

And yet another close by.
