I agree which is why I find it interesting. However, Dowell's photographs in question only show one side of the gable wall in detail and really only do show these spots on a few blocks as that is all we have seen close up. This is not context enough, however, IMO and if this is true we would expect to find it elsewhere in Egypt.

Not really. You more often than not argue against something, or make a statement of fact, without taking the time to actually look yourself. My apologies if past histories led to an unwarranted assumption.

But if you want to be done with the "nastiness" from here on out, I am more than happy to oblige.

Not to be argumentative, but I do not see any stray dots anywhere on any photo and I honestly think these are of a good enough quality to see at least something relatable, particularly the Neferirkare store room. This is on my radar so if I find any more I will post them. But I also provide these to show as well that quarry marks and worker's graffiti are quite common in AE. If anything I find it curious not that the relieving chambers have them at all but the fact they have so many in such a relatively small area. And not just the nearly 2 dozen lines of full/partial lines of writing including several cartouches but as per Petrie they are all replate with dozens of various mason's lines, more than seems necessary to accomplish the task.

<strike>But there is no seam on the other side or the top.</strike>[ignore]

<strike>Well, if there were a pharaoh's name, and this is alleged to be the others "twin", then we certainly would expect to see it in a cartouche....The fact it is not in a cartouche a few feet over from one that is supposedly the same exact thing seems a little strange to me.</strike>[ignore]
