JE: Anyway it seems to have some Victorian English characteristics to it ..
It's very subtle but I think it may be there ..
SC: If you are referring to the Khufu cartouche then that's very interesting, Jon and I'd be interested to see what you mean. Certainly what we see from Vyse's handwritten journal and Mr Hill's drawing of the cartouche (now in the British Museum), both were able to emulate the style of these marks quite well. What I think is of more significance is the glyphs in the crew name (presented above the cartouche in Campbell's Chamber) which presents a glyph that is not extant anywhere else outside this chamber until the 5th dynasty (at the earliest--yes, Stower--I've read Goedicke). Time machines aside, how is it possible to get a 5th dynasty glyph inside a 4th dynasty monument?
