To avoid confusion I post the agreed upon units used at ancient times:

The Khufu pyramid base width expressed in ancient feet:

The feet derived from running stadiums(1 stadium = 600 feet)

w = 774.98 Delphi feet = 718.84 Olympia feet = 760.30 Epidaurus feet = 722.18 Priene feet = 776.51 Nemea feet = 747.29 Panathenean feet

And these are the units of measure that are 'metric' not derived from a running stadium:

w = 702.33 Common Hellenic feet = 696.43 Attican feet = 745.99 Herodotus feet = 731.31 Lycurgus feet

7 plethra was equal to 700 feet

plethora is a different word it means many or something like that.
