First, you didn't answer my question about why you believe the painters of that cartouche would allow stray dots to reside within such sacred real estate when all they had to do was a tiny amount of scraping to remove them. Especially in such a visible location. But that doesn't strike you odd at all, eh?

I also defy your flippant disregard for the high placement of that glyph. Nowhere else is the horned viper placed so high in the text flow in any other glyph in Egypt, let alone in side a royal cartouche, equal to the level of the chicks' heads. It is anomalous despite your denial.

Alright already, my "error" was the shorthand omission of "as in" Khnum. Also, there is no "Khnum-Khufu". There is only "Khnum-Khfu". Please make a note of it.
