The smallest of the Giza Pyramids is that of Menkaure. The pharoah, who ruled for at least 26 years, died before his furerary complex was completed, and parts of it were finished by his son Shepseskaf. Many additions were made to the complex during the Fifth and Sixth dynasties, indicating that, despite his untimely death, the king's cult flourished for more than three centuries. Originally about 240 feet high, the pyramid now measures 204 feet on a base of 357 feet wide.

The causeway, which is 1,995 feet (608m) long, was never finished properly, although Menkaure's son, Shepseskaf, finished it off with mudbrick after his father's death. Had the work been completed properly, it would have been walled and roofed all the way down to the valley temple.

====================================================

Its measures are 65 metres height, and 102 by 104.4 metres along its base. The angle of its sides are 51º20', the lowest of the Giza pyramids. In volume it is about 9% of Khufu's pyramid.

The Pyramid of Menkaure:

Khafre's son, Menkaure, built the smallest of the 3 main Pyramids on the Giza Plateau. This one was only a mere 65.5m (215ft) tall, nowadays 62m (203ft), with sides of only 105m (344ft) and an angle of 51.3 degrees.

====================================================

Petrie measured:

N.
E - 4149.2 inches = 105.39 meters
S - 4157.8 inches = 105.61 meters
W - 4153.9 inches = 105.51 meters

Mean - 4153.6 = 105.5 meters

Lehner is wrong and so are you.
