Thanks DUNE. Yeah, that's apparently a real overriding concern about the damage to any of those ancient artifacts, monuments, etc. As I've said many times, I believe it's very possible that several cultures have had their way with those artifacts, and perhaps over many more millennia than we've been led to believe. So sure, it's quite possible that such a destructive force is responsible not only for the hacking in G1 but also elsewhere all along the Nile, including all those missing faces and heads from otherwise relatively intact statues and inscriptions. And yet some of that damage seems to specific to be a 'hate crime' such as the floor of the HP and QC, the hacking up of the lower -- but not upper -- aspect of the AP, the chiseling along the Long Groove of the GG, Mamoun's Hole, the hacked ribs on the walls of the AC and 3 quasi-curved cutouts on the top of the AC's western wainscot, etc. That pattern of damage is not so much the signature of hate and destruction as much as the signature of bounty hunters, and there's a lot of that in G1.

My only point here is that regardless of when the damage was done or who did it, the damage we see there today doesn't plausibly suggest that those granite fragments originally served as portcullis blocks in the AC.
