I find it interesting that Petrie says G1's coffer is not as well made as G2's.

He says,

" It is not finely wrought, and cannot in this respect rival the coffer in the Second Pyramid. On the outer sides the lines of sawing may be plainly seen: horizontal on the N., a small patch horizontal on the E., vertical on the S., and nearly horizontal on the W.; showing that the masons did not hesitate at cutting a slice of granite 90 inches long, and that the jewelled bronze saw must have been probably about 9 feet long. On the N. end is a place, near the W. side, where the saw was run too deep into the granite, and was backed out again by the masons; but this fresh start they made was still too deep, and two inches lower they backed out a second time, having altogether cut out more than 1/10 inch deeper than they intended. On the E. inside is a portion of a tube drill hole remaining, where they tilted the drill over into the side by not working it vertically. They tried hard to polish away all that part, and took off about 1/10 inch thickness all round it; but still they had to leave the. side of the hole 1/10 deep, 3 long, and 1.3 wide; the bottom of it is 8 or 9 below the original top of the coffer. They made a similar error on the N. inside, but of a much less extent.

All of this kinda negates our applying exact intendedmeasurements to this box,as one gets the impression from how Petrie describes the various cutting problems that they had , as if they new it was just a stone box, and not one that would encase the King.

Having said that, it's still possible that a specific size was asked for but the masons just had a bad day at the office.

So with Jims suggestion of a 9.9" lid we could make the height of the box to be 51.2 x width of 38.5" x length of 90" and / by 2.8 = 63360" or one mile in inches.

Also the number 512 has its own significance.




Also if you was filling a tank of that size it would take 768 US Gallons, 768 x 4 = 3072
