4th Dynasty tomb of Debhen:
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.
From the 6th Dynasty:
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."
We can only imagine what is it they saw that inspired the pyramid kilt guild beginning in the 5th Dynasty:
And how could there be such titles as "Overseer of the Site of the Pyramid" and "Overseer of the West Side of the Pyramid" and the like if they had never even at least seen them?
This idea you keep pushing, despite all the information provided to the contrary, that the AE were oblivious to knowing the pyramids were even there and/or understanding they were mad-made structures, to put it the most polite way possible, is "counter-productive" to say the least.
