nht means Sycamore.
This also explains "Horus Tree Garden" on early dynastic oil tags. In older Buto script you saw "Step podium-hobble-falcon" in and of itself not translatable. After Den, this symbol triad is replaced with "Falcon-Tree(wood)-Garden" (note the grid symbol actually depicting the rows of the compound) with Helck reading "Horus Tree Garden"...a similar installation presumably at another royal hwt estate supplying heb-sed or afterlife cult.
So a mrt temple appears to have been a tree garden dedicated to Hathor. That explains a lot! Look at the Sycamore next to the Wall of the Crow. whith Khafre's VT nearby.
Hassan wrote that root system dates to OK.
That tentatively explains the VT and causeway function. Not stone transport....provisions.
