Hi Lee,

I just took another look at Ancient Egyptian Science: Ancient Egyptian Mathematics, by Clagett. In the text he mentions the description by Lepsius of the remen length on one of the cubit rods, but take a look at his illustrations of cubit rods at the back of the book. The first illustration, of the wooden cubit rod at Turin (Fig IV.24.1) which he references to Lepsius and which is the one I think he is talking about in the text, shows the royal cubit hieroglyph over digits 25-28, shows the short (6 palm) cubit hieroglyph over digits 21-24, and shows the remen hieroglyph over the fifth palm (digits 17-20). Figure IV.24.2 on the next page does not show the hieroglyphs for the royal cubit, the standard cubit, or the remen. Figure IV.24.3 is a broken up stone cubit rod at Florence and reads from right to left, and digits 21-24 are missing, but you can see the royal cubit hieroglyph over digits 25-28, and the remen hieroglyph over the fifth palm (digits 17-20). Figures IV.24.4 and IV.24.5 do not show the hieroglyphs for the royal cubit, standard cubit, or remen. Fig IV.24.6, from Alexandria?, shows the remen hieroglyph over the fifth palm (digits 17-20). Figures IV.24.8 and 9 do not show the hieroglyphs for royal cubit, standard cubit, or remen. Fig IV.24.10 is I think a reproduction cubit rod at Leiden of the Fig IV.24.6 cubit rod, and it also shows the remen hieroglpyh over the fifth palm (digits 17-20). According to the article from the Met Museum cited in my article (also cited elsewhere) the gold plated cubit rod at Turin also shows the remen at the fifth palm (digits 17-20), and also the cubit rods at Cairo I cited above from de Lubicz. My understanding is that the surviving cubit rods that have the hierophlyphs for the royal cubit and the short cubit, also have the hieroglyph for the remen.
