”But if it is a circle with a dot-so what? This does not disprove Khufu built G1 no more so than a circle with 3 lines proves he did. If Vyse did fake it-so what? The joke is on him. All this attention is given to this one cartouche yet the other nearly 2 dozens lines of writing in the relieving chambers are ignored, which is ridiculous to me regardless of which side of the argument one is on, but more importantly, regardless of the greater context this would provide, as a whole what they prove beyond a shadow of a doubt is that these chambers were assembled/repaired at a time when hieroglyphic writing existed in Egypt which ultimately indisputably gives a date range of at least the chambers. Coupled with the markings in the "air shafts" this even further dates construction up to the point of the use of red ochre paint.”
I agree Thanos5150; far too much emphasis has been placed on this singular element within the ‘chambers’. Ann Macy Roth’s extensive study of ‘mortuary cult and work crew phyles’ of the Old Kingdom adequately circumvents the politics of this discussion. She writes:

”...In the following reign of Khufu, the gang seems to have been the most important unit of organization. The texts inscribed on the side walls of the relieving chambers of the Great Pyramid name three gangs, each based on a different form of the king's name. Seven blocks give a gang name based on his Horus name, Hr-Mddw; ten give a name based on the full form of his nswt-bjtj name, Khnum-Khufu; and two blocks give a name based on the abbreviated form of that name, Khufu.”
