Is it a twist of fate that a circle of 1,296,000 devices has a radius of 206, 265 devices and that 20, 6264 is the size of either an English and an Egyptian cubit, that the Hebrew shekel weighs 129. 6 grams, and the English guinea 129. 6 grains, and the measure of the Most Holy in Solomon's Temple is 1296 inches?

This is the theory that the great pyramids were equipped as tombs, and as tombs in basic terms. In help of this conception there is no direct or oblique evi dence whatsoever. While the numerous small pyramids of Mid dle and overdue country Egypt have been truly and evidently designed as tombs, and have disclosed a wealth of mummies and coffins, the 8 'great' pyramids assigned to the 3rd and Fourth Dynasties of the outdated nation have published no sign of either coffin or mummy. The construction of these vast edifices differs in every way from the later tombs.
