Well Jacob, your basing most of your ancient units and their world of Math on the Rhind Mathematical Papyrus, to which is dated to around 1550 BC, and being the main Pyramid building age began circa 2575 + BC , which is a thousand years before your favourite mathematical Papyrus, then its no surprise there's no evidence left, and there's no point pointing me to the Diary of Merer Papyrus, as that could be detailing the restoration work of a later time.

So its not so cut and dried when it comes to finding evidence .
