Yeah, quite disappointing. I had to dig deep to find even that which otherwise I found nothing beyond the original press blurb of the one. You'd think the discovery of these cartouches would be even more significant than the boat.

Regardless, sorry people-no Vyse forgery here.

I am curious though, in your opinion, what does it say to you that Djedefre's cartouche (throne name) and Golden Horus name would be found along with the Khufu cartouches? We are given this idea that a pharaoh ruled, died, and only after a new pharaoh took over, but in the last years of a kings life they may not have been capable of rule. Co-regency has always been a possibility in the early Dynastic period so I am left to wonder if we are seeing the end of Khufu's reign in which Djedefre had assumed kingship.

I think too the dates found make little sense if Khufu was still pharaoh. Khufu I we have only Djedefre who is generally accepted to be king at the time which the date found there would refer to either the 11th or 22nd year of his reign. Khufu II we have 5 Khufu cartouches yet mentioned is the 14th year of the harvest (not cattle count?) which is presumed to be of Khufu's reign. The Merer diary notes presumably the 27th of Khufu's reign so he ruled at least that long. This means Dejedfre would not be king supposedly for at least another 14yrs or so and did not cover Khufu I until at least the 11th year of his reign, perhaps 22nd, leaving a roughly 25-36yr gap between the two. This makes no sense. What does make sense, however, if the 11th year of Djedfre's reign is accepted and the 14th year found in Khufu II is also credited to Djedefre meaning he would have worked on Khufu II a mere three years after Khufu I.
