Yea i have briefly looked at this thread , the subject of cubit length and other units of measure from the Egyptian epoch is a minefield of complexity , there are so many different cubit lengths that it's nigh on impossible to state that one was more important than another in any given period of ancient Egyptian life, given their time period stretches over 30 dynasties Starting around 3000 BC.
I don't like to hear the modern Meter being incorporated into any discussion on ancient Metrology , and to use a comment by the late John Michell he said it's just "Crass".
Let me quote what he said about the Meter from his small book "Ancient Metrology"
The French metric system is a modern device , unrelated to any previous system of measurement , and its use in work on ancient metrology is therefore inappropriate . The metre was designed for commercial and utilitarian purposes and for measurement of quantity , whereas the ancient units, each representing different systems of numeration, were related to each other by Number". end of quote.
Now on this Remen unit at 14.58", from my perspective its a nice fit in my own work on G1's height, my suggested heights for G1 are 5773.68" and 5775".
So using this Remen unit at 14.58" x 396 we get 5773.68"
It also comes close to revealing the numbers for Earth's circumference of 24883.2 if G1's perimeter was 36279.7" / 1.458 = 24883.2
The only thing about that above sum is that my favoured perimeter for G1 is 36278" also confirmed by Glen Dashes survey, but who really knows what was intended measure for G1's base.
