Hello Thanos5150:

Mastaba Tomb S 3038, by definition, is not a ”pyramid”. While S 3038 may have served as an inspiration to Imhotep, this phase of the rectangular mud brick, three-sided, eight-stepped burial tumulus (mound) of Nebetka/Nebitka is, while adequately unique, a mastaba tomb.

It appears that you are confusing the phase construction sequence of Djoser’s Step Pyramid (your above second image) with that of Mastaba Tomb 3038. What consensus? The structure is not ”oriented to the cardinal points” [refer image below]:

The mastaba contained no ”locally quarried stone”, nor was it “”faced with dressed limestone”; rather it was constructed of sand, gravel, and mud brick.
