An arch-itect or arch-aeologist probably knows that there are different types of arches. For example.......Quote
The only thing I can think of resembling an arch (and of course it’s not a true arch) is the gable arrangement over the original entrance. This has the “fake” inscription by Lepsius on it.
Someone with a dictionary might know that "arch" has more than one meaning. Such as........
1. (prenominal) chief; principal; leading: his arch rival.
2. (prenominal) very experienced; expert: an arch criminal.
3. knowing or superior
4. playfully or affectedly roguish or mischievous
Really wouldn't be fair to discredit a man because you are ignorant of the application of a four letter word.
YOU are the one who brought Vyse into this thread. I'm talking about the Khufu name. What in the sam hell are you talking about ?Quote
This has NOTHING TO DO with Vyse.
Au contraire. my extremely knowledgeable friend, it was published in Malta in '35 or '36. And why would Vyse need to be IN England to know of it's contents ? Vyse was already in the British Museum circle, amongst others.Quote
I’ve just now noticed (I don’t know why I didn’t earlier) that you reproduced as a source available to Vyse a woodcut and text from John Gardner Wilkinson’s Manners and Customs of the Ancient Egyptians.
We have already established that this work was published in January 1838, by which time Vyse was back in England.
