Having read your treatise;
You assume too much from Vyse's handwritten and crudely drawn notes. Vyse, in 1837, was no expert in Hieroglyphs. He had a barely functional knowledge
of them. He also had a flawed reference book of hieroglyphs with him, the 1828 Materia Hieroglyphica
by Wilkinson, which mistakenly depicted
Khufu's cartouche as having a blank solar disk sans 3 hatched lines. When Vyse opened the chambers and discovered the cartouches, he did not see a
"proper" (per Materia Hieroglyphica
) blank solar disk in the cartouche, and that led to his confusion, evident in the journal entries. Why, he
must have wondered, did this cartouche not
have a blank disk, why does it show a hatched disk? He was expecting
to find the cartouche
with either the 'blank' solar disk (alternatively written as a disk with a dot in the center), instead he found something that contradicted
Wilkinson's Materia Hieroglyphica
, a disk with three lines.
Also not addresses in your treatise is the instances found in the chambers of Khufu's horus name written in hieroglyphics that was completely unknown
by Vyse or anyone in 1837.
Sitchin's Folly: Graffiti in the Pyramid
Yeah, Khufu’s Cartouches in the Great Pyramid of Giza are Genuine
If Vyse truly
wanted to commit such a forgery, he would have stuck with the leading experts of the day, Wilkinson, and the Materia
, he would have kept the spelling with a blank solar disk. The fact that the cartouches caused such a consternation indicates their
discovery led to a new paradigm in understanding hieroglyphics in the 19th century.
