I didn't chime in last year when this discussion first went active, but now that it's rekindled, I agree with Frank D here. The glyph does appear to be the bread-cone and not a "pyramid". It is the symbol of giving. It's the same breadcone being "offered" by Gardiner's extended arm glyph (D37, di, rdi). It is not a pyramid "with a door and a subterranean shaft".

Besides, how would anyone back then know where the doors and shafts were in any pyramid if all entrances supposedly were securely concealed by the casing stones? As Thanos already pointed out: "And regardless, Egyptologists still don't know what many of these early symbols mean or at best originally meant."
