Thanks for the kind words. I took another look at the Stecchini link and also the following one about the origin of the English foot, and as much as I like Stecchini, I remain troubled by his insistence that the primary Egyptian measures are exactly .3 m for the foot, .45 m for the cubit and .525 m for the royal cubit. It makes me wonder if he was a little bit too metric. Also it makes me think his cubit is too long for early Egypt.

Try this: Take 20.625 inches for the royal cubit and divide it by 28. This gives a royal cubit digit instead of a remen digit, which I am not especially fond of. Then multiply the digit value by 16 to get the length of the Egyptian foot (again a bit longer than the foot from the remen digit and a bit longer than the Roman foot, which I am also not especially fond of), then multiply this foot value by 56/55. How many inches? Hint: no hair.

16/28 x 56/55 = 32/55 :: 32 RC = 55 ft.

Jim

I think Stecchini is almost correct about his royal cubit in metres if the correct metre is used being the MC meter 39.375 inches

0.525 /441 x 440 is Stecchini's shorter RC being 0.523809524 meters of 39.375 feet

This is exactly 20.625 inches and everything balances as it must always do.

the point i make over and over is everyone is correct if the work is interpreted in the correct context.

Stecchini is correct but he was working in units of 441/440 but Berriman worked in units of 440/440.

i have never seen anything by Stecchini but his analysis fits.

I have not yet read your revised article but i am about to.

cheers

Dave
