Menkaure as Mycherinus starts with an M. In the Pythagorean - ancient Ionic alphabet the M letter is the 13th letter of the alphabet:
13 => 1+3 =4
It's decadic isopsephia value is:
M = 40 = 4 x 10 => 4+0 = 4
Mycherinus starts with the My syllable.
MY = 40 + 400 = 440 = 4 x 110
Khufu pyramid base length = 440 royal cubits
Apart from all this the pyramid height was theorized by Petrie to be 4 times the height of the granite courses.
The Delta letter is the 4th letter. It is a triangle referring to the triangular faces of the pyramid but also to the 4 faces of the regular tetrahedron. At the same time the base of the pyramid is square - 4 sides and the regular octahedron - cube has square sides.
This ties in very well with the volume transformation that defines the dimensions of the Menkaure pyramid based on the base length of Khafre's pyramid. 4 sides of square => cube, 4 sides of tetrahedron. Equal volume for tetrahedron, cube and sphere, and walla! the dimensions of Menkaure's pyramid.
Finishing up I post the relation between the 4 number and the Menkaure pyramid:
The Hellenic name for the word four as TESSARA.
TESSARA = 300 + 5 + 200 + 200 + 1 + 100 + 1 = 807
4 SIDES so each one(the above is the perimeter of the base)
TESSARA/4 = 807/4 = 201.75
This is pretty much the base length of Menkaure's pyramid in royal cubits according to Petrie's survey.
4 number and 4 pyramids for Menkaure, 1 large main pyramid and 3 smaller satellite pyramids.
