Hwfw cartouche = Suphis, as Rosellini follows Manetho
Khnm Kwfw cartouche = erroneous ascription of 'brother of Suphis', again Rosellini following Manetho's choice of name here.
If you are not mistaken and Herodotus erroneously described Khufu and Khafre as 'brothers', Rosellini just made the same mistake.
He knows Hwfw is Suphis (from Manetho) and knows from Herodotus that this character was called Cheops.
He only knows from Herodotus that the 'brother' is Chephren.
I still need to track down Herodotus' ascription of them as 'brothers'.
Do you have it to hand?
