The Great Pyramid and second pyramid were nearly the same height however the second was slightly lower.
Herodotus the Greek historian says "Cheops, he built a pyramid , but of a smaller size (I measured both of them myself)."
Cheops is a mystery which I would love to crack. Its about 50 feet shorter in length than the GP and 11 feet shorter in height. I does not register with royal cubits although its interior coffer measures are perfect for imperial feet its basee length being 706.2 feet approximately and in ordinary cubits ie 18 inches = to 470.8 cubits which is the height in imperial feet 470.8 imperial feet. This is because it is a 3 4 5 pyramid.
Great that this post has lasted 10 years really really good and thanks to the unique Handcock website.
