Hello Origyptian,

The walls of the King’s Chamber are made up of 5 courses of equal height.
Flinders Petrie gives the height of the courses as 47.045” +/- 0.051” = 46.994” to 47.096”
46.994” x 5 = 234.97”
47.096” x 5 = 235.48”

I’m curious about your comment, ‘The deepest measurement I've seen reported below the current floor.’
In the 35+ years I’ve been dealing with the subject I have never read, seen or heard anybody give the measurement from the base of the Chamber’s walls as 11.17rc/230.46” (give or take a small fraction).
Please would you cite this ‘reported’ measurement?
If it’s, say, a Wikipedia entry, then it requires correcting.

Anyway, perhaps you now understand correctly how the pi ratio appears (deliberately or unintentionally, depending on one’s viewpoint) in the north and south walls of the King’s Chamber.

BTW, what’s with your rounding off the numbers I gave?

So many questions.
So few answers - and not one of them mine.
