Phyle mark on hidden "store room" in the Pyramid temple of Neferirkare 5th Dynasty:
No planar marks.
Cubit sign quarry mark Pyramid of Neferefre 5th Dynasty:
Casing stone fragment Dashur:
Fragment Khafre's mastaba (which begs the questions why did he need a mastaba if he was going to be buried in a pyramid someday):
I am not interested in the graffiti or what it says at this point, but rather the idea those splatter marks are actually from planar leveling. An interesting idea, but just "saying" something is true does not make it so. To make your case you need context as if this is indeed what they are they would be found elsewhere. I am not saying you are "wrong", or not, Philip, so no need to get your panties in a wad, just asking if you had taken the time to find other examples outside G1 that might help prove your theory by context, but apparently this is not required for you to believe something is true or not.
On a different note:
Bauval finally posted an uncropped picture of the so called "hidden" cartouche by the way:
Just what I thought. It too terminates at the joint between the two blocks. Of course the last glyph is covered with plaster.
<strike>Why is there no cartouche around it if this is the pharaohs name...?</strike> [Ignore-Brain fart]
