— Vyse’s first sketch in the journal of the Khufu cartouche.
You’ll see that if one looks very closely (much easier to see in this enlargement!) one can make out a couple of dots within the initial circle.
Are we now going to have a scenario in which Vyse (1) painted dots in the circle, (2) rubbed them out and (3) replaced them with lines?
Or are we going to have what sanity suggests?
