The perimeter of the Great Pyramid, per Petrie, is 30**22.9** feet/100**7.5** yards.

Check your math.

I think you mean 3022.9 feet/100

**7.63** yards.

"The mean base being 9068.8 ± .5 inches" - Petrie.

- 9068.3 = 1007.59 British yards.

- 9069.3 =
**1007.7** British yards.

Cole gave a mean base of 9069.4 or

**1007.71** British yards.

I postulate 1000 yards equals

**1007.7** British yards.

Which means you don't even know the meaning of the word "exactly".

I know exactly what "exactly" means.

And since the only cubit measurement in existance at the time was the Royal Cubit of 20.63 inches then that makes the Great Pyramid, again per Petrie's measurements, 439.62/439.54/439.63/439.6 cubits per side for a perimeter length of 1758.4 Royal Cubits.

The base of the Great Pyramid was not built using Royal cubits. Silly theory.

1758.4 Royal cubits

or

2000 cubits.

Since there was no short cubit in existance during the Old Kingdom then there was no double-cubit derived from it either.

There was obviously two cubits in use around 600 BC, the

**original old cubit** and the

**new** long (Royal) cubit.

**Ezekiel 40:5 **- " I saw a wall completely surrounding the temple area. The length of the measuring rod in the man’s hand was six
**long cubits**, each of which was **a cubit and a handbreadth.**"

**Ezekiel 43:13**- "These are the measurements of the altar in
**long cubits, that cubit being a cubit and a handbreadth" **

**2 Chronicles 3** - (3 translations)

- "sixty cubits long and twenty cubits wide
**(using the cubit of the old standard)**."

- "the length,
**in cubits of the old standard**, was sixty cubits, and the breadth twenty cubits."

- "The length by cubits
**according to the old cubit** was threescore cubits, and the breadth twenty cubits."

Did the Royal cubit even exist during the Old Kingdom?

The perimeter of the Great Pyramid is 1000 yards, exactly as designed.
