Yes he did. How would you explain this........Quote
For the allegations to be serious the fraud would have to be possible. And that brings us back to my question: Did Vyse have access to an inscription he could copy
No he wouldn't. Because the egyptologists concoct meanings to suit the hieroglyphs. They came up with "Horus" names, and kings having 5 names, etc, etc, after the fact, to explain the problem hieroglyphs in a fashion that fits their preconceived notions.Quote
My point exactly. In order to commit fraud Vyse would have needed an inscription that depicted Khufu´s Horus name in a linear fashion. Why do you not consult your friend Google and dig up a plausible candidate?
As far as the glyphs above the cartouche, well there was always Wilkinson, Lane, Champollion, Young. You make it sound like nothing had been deciphered before Vyse's fake, and that's just not true.
And what's wrong with Google ? Do you actually sit in a library reading, or perhaps you use Yahoo to search. I guess you don't know that Google is the best search engine on the net. Try it.
