Your amended statement:
It's already been pointed out several times that there are problems with the entry in Allen's logbook. The existence of these unresolved problems brings into question the veracity of the facts alleged in the entry.Quote
If these markings were faked as the Brewer/Allen 'testimony' implies, then it would seem that he did.
To repeat: do you have a citation for this alleged discovery by Howard Vyse?Quote
He wouldn't have known it was the Horus name, of course. He would have simply copied what was there beside the Khufu cartouche that he DID recognise. As far as Tricky Dicky would have been concerned, whatever these unknown inscriptions were, they clearly related in some way to Khufu.
