Had some time to review the literature and previous discussions on this inscription:
Smyth, Piazzi, Life and Work At The Great Pyramid
1867, Vol. 1, pp. 71-72. Doesn't mention it and he describes in great depth that which is in-scripted at the entrance.
Nor, does it appear (I didn't have time to look thru all 19th century sources) in the most common 19th century sources and due to its resemblance to
Greek would have been noted by the Greek loving (Most Europeans learned Greek in school during that era).
Its presence is not noted in Goyon (1944), Les Inscriptions et Graffiti des Voyageurs sur la Grande Pyramide.
It DOES show up in Pochan's book ( A. Pochan. The Mysteries of the Great Pyramids. 1978. Avon Books) with the illustration of them and it was printed
From this less than full scholarly look I would say the inscription was placed on the pyramid in the late middle 20th century.
How would that be possible?
Easy for many of those years up to the recent past you could easy bribe guards to do as you like. I once spent 100 Egyptian pounds to be allowed (in
1984) to wander over Menkaure's pyramid for several hours with an Egyptologist friend.
One will also note a recent taking of paint from the relieving chambers. Security at the pyramids has always been slack and inept.
Edited to add.....about 20 US dollars back then.
