That the entrance feature shows the actual glyph for ‘mountain’ as well as a pyramid means it has more going for it than just the title of the pyramid: Shining Horizon of Khufu/Akhet Khufu.

We know the hieroglyph for mountain is two mounds joined by a valley, with or without a disc between mounds; and ‘foreign land’ is three mounds, no disc, so Spiros, your “The glyph wants to show us that it is one tall peak protruding over a shorter but seemingly larger peak.” is quite wrong considering the large mound is on the right, overshadowing the left hand mound, with both overshadowing the pyramid form.

Where is the mound overshadowing the pyramid form? The title of the Great Pyramid is 'Khufu's horizon'. If Khufu is stationed in Thebes or nearby in Greece then he would see the mountains in the horizon. One of these corresponds to Khufu's pyramid.

The two mounds joined by a valley with a disc between thee mounds is not the hieroglyph for 'mountain'. The hieroglyph for mountain is that without the sun disk. The previous one(with the disk ) is the hieroglyph for 'Akhet'. There is no disk in the GP entrance carving. This means that it does not represent Akhet but rather mountain. The reason for one mound being smaller is that it does not represent the mountain notion in an abstract - general form, on the contrary it represents a true mountain that looks like that from a specific observation point.

The three mounds represent 'foreign land’ because it is the three mountains of Greece that were the inspiration behind the three main Giza pyramids. This mapping did not only correspond to Greece(Hellas). As I have shown it also involved the Sinai mountains which even though were a lot closer to (African: true) Egypt, they were still considered foreign.

So the Greek mountains that I referred to aligning with the equinoxes are not the 3 great mountains in Greece that were used to map Giza.

I can name at least 14 peaks that are visible from Thebes: Teumessos, Teumessos(lesser peak), Dirphys, Kandili, Ptoon, Khlomon, Hypatos, Parinitha(sub-peak), Kithairon, Pastra, Helikon, Zagaras, Kolliedes, and Parnassus.

4 of these (2 in the East + 2 in the West) create the Akhet glyph. To these we add the 1 Khufu pyramid equivalent(the one with the largest altitude of the 14).

Eastern peaks:
altitude = 612 m (on the left looks short because the distance is ~ 10500 m)
altitude = 536 m{Google Earth} (on the right looks tall because the distance is only ~ 7600 m)

Western peaks:
altitude = 1748 m (on the left looks short because the distance is ~ 38500 m)
altitude = 1525 m (on the right looks tall because the distance is only ~ 26500 m)

The Hasan Dagi cannot be the mythical Western mountains simply because it is not to the West of Giza(like the Greek mountains), it is to the North-(North-East).
