Petrie tells us in S156 regarding the coffer:
“The volume has also been attributed to a sphere of 2½ cubits (or ¼ width of the chamber) in diameter; by the true contents this would need a cubit of 20.644, which is very close to the best determinations.”
2.5 cubits expressed in palms is 17.5 palms. Twice the diameter of Alhena would be 17,528,910 k RC.
So properties of Alhena that relate to the pyramid:
Distance: approx 110 light years (baselength of pyramid 4 x 110 = 440 RC)
Mass 2.8 times the suns mass (height of pyramid 280 RC)
Volume of coffer related to 2.5 cubit diameter sphere perhaps relates to diameter of Alhena.
