Manu: Scott’s mission is to expose all those which tie Khufu to G1 as fraud because if even one survives his prosecution, the overall thesis falls.
No--that is incorrect. We know via Walter Allen's logbook:
Faint marks were repainted, some were new.
If we accept these remarks (of Humphries Brewer, Allen's great grandfather) as being a true account then clearly there are some authentic marks in these chambers along with fake ones. Our job, as I have oft stated, is to determine which is fake and which is authentic.
Certainly if one of the various names of the king is found to be authentic then that will prove G1 to Khufu & thus to a 4th dynasty provenance. But likewise, if just one of these king's names is found to have been entirely faked then this proves Vyse perpetrated fraud. This is to say that proving Vyse perpetrated a fraud does not, of itself, disprove Khufu built the GP.
