I guess it wouldn't be the PT, therefore I believe that a pyramid is a tomb, bar any without a burial chamber, and where, for instance with Amenemhat III, we have two pyramids, both are tombs, though he was of course in the Hawara pyramid. The three for Sneferu I'll admit are a puzzle. I cannot see the structures abutting pyramids as anything except mortuary temples. The pyramid is a necropolis feature, so they cannot be the temple to a god as they don't belong in the necropolis, however, the dead king is now a god, but then his worship wChen dead is what a mortuary temple is for, and a place to lay offerings. No not you, sorry. I was speaking towards @cladking. I must've mis-quoted. My apologies. Just want him to say plainly what he thinks they are or were meant to be. 1 Top Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
