Excellent work.

I think I quoted this passage before from a Menkaure period mastaba:
Quote

As for this tomb, it was the king of Upper and Lower Egypt, Menkure, [living forever], who caused that it be [made], when [his majesty] was [upon] the road beside the pyramid, HirC (HY), in order to inspect the work on the pyramid: " Divine-is-Menkure." --- [there camel] the [naval] commander and the two high priests of Memphis, and the [workmen, standing upon it, to inspect the work on [the pyramid, "Divine-is-Menkure"]. - 50 men were assigned to do the work on it every day, besides [exacting of them, that which the r-1 desired. His majesty commanded that [no man
should be taken] for any forced labor, except to do the work on it, to his satisfaction.

Sahure period:
Quote

"I have made this tomb as a just possession, and never have I taken a thing belonging to any person."

....

"I have made this my tomb upon the western arm in a pure place. There was no tomb of any person therein, in order that the possessions of him, who has gone to his ka, might be protected. As for any people who shall enter into this tomb as their mortuary property or shall do an evil thing to it, judgment shall be had with them for it, by the great god. I have made this tomb as my shelter; I was honored by the king, who brought for me a sarcophagus."

He is making it clear he has not taken this tomb from another and made it for himself. He's worried and warning those who would come and take his funerary goods. He is honored the king brought him a sarcophagus.

Looking though here they talk a lot about pyramids, pyramid palaces, working on pyramids, hauling stone to pyramids and the pyramid cemeteries, building ships, building tombs, building huge palaces, working stone, moving and installing sarcophagi and false doors ect brought from quarries to the pyramid cemeteries and installing them, hauling and moving granite from Elephantine [Aswan] to be installed in pyramids, ect, ect.

An interesting 6th Dynasty passage:
Quote

Then I [be]sought - the majesty of the king that there be brought for me a limestone sarcophagus from Troja [the quarry] The king had the treasurer of the god ferry over, together with a troop of sailors under his hand, in order to bring for me this sarcophagus from Troja; and he arrived with it, in a large ship belonging to the court, together with [its] lid, the false door; the setting, two [ ], and one offering-tablet.

Sarcophagus, false door, offering table, ect. All made of stone, all standard funerary equipment of the day.

6th Dynasty (quarry expeditions):
Quote

His majesty sent me Ibheta (Ybh' .t), to bring the sarcophagus (named) : "Chest-of-the-Living," together with its lid and the costly, splendid pyramidion for the pyramid (called) : "Mernere-Shines-andis-Beautiful," of the queen. His majesty sent me to Elephantine [Aswan] to bring a false door of granite, together with its offering-tablet, doors and settings of granite; to bring doorways and offering-tablets of granite, belonging to the upper chamber of the pyramid (called): "Mernere-Shines-andis-Beautiful," of the queen. Then I sailed down-stream to the pyramid (called): "Mernere-Shines-and-is-Beautiful," with 6 cargo-boats, 3 [tow]-boats and 3 [-]-boats to only one warship....

His majesty sent [me]' to dig five canals in the South and to make 3 cargo-boats and 4 [tow]-boats of acacia wood of Wawat Then the negro chiefs of Irthet (Yrrit), Wawat, Yam (Y'm) and Mazoi (Md')a drew timber therefor, and I did the whole in only one year. They were launched and laden with very large granite blocks for the pyramid (called) : "Mernere-Shines-and-is-Beautiful."

Keeps going and going. Not enough time tonight to skim through it all.

One thing you don't see is anything about pyramids or temples existing before their time built by some lost civilization or gods or obviously them not comprehending the pyramids were man-made. Aye caramba. Enough is enough with this nonsense.
