I have posted several in the past, but if you Google search Khafre pyramid casing stones and the like you can dig some up. What is it you are wanting to see specifically-just more?

This is a good question. Personally I do not believe the pyramids (regardless of when the cores were built and by whom) of Dashur and Giza were built by one pharaoh or one at a time and were likely worked on by many concurrently over several decades if not centuries. Regardless of the authenticity, or not, of the one Khufu cartouche, there are 2 dozen more cartouches/lines of graffiti that could not have all been faked ergo sometime during the 4th Dynasty people were working in the relieving chambers. The cartouche was not invented until arguably the end of the 3rd Dynasty but in reality it becomes common in the 4th which dates the earliest the graffiti could be there. Given this could not have been mere repairs it suggests the 4th Dynasty marked the completion of the Giza pyramid project, not necessarily its origination.
