Not a single one of the early giant pyramids of Ancient Egypt have ever been inscribed with any official texts inside or outside. They are completely

tomb, thereby consigning the king's soul to eternal oblivion. As such, these early, giant pyramids could never have been constructed as tombs since,
in the absence of the inscribed name of the king, they could never have functioned effectively as a tomb of the king. These early pyramids were not
conceived or constructed as tombs. They were something else.
