Note on the Sphinx

Giza (Gîza). The Great Sphinx.
Note reads:
'The Sphinx is supposed to be of pyramid date from (1) a tablet of the time of Xufu which mentions it, and from (2) the dream of Thothmes IV which attributes it to Xafra. (3) also its surroundings at Gizeh, of any consequence, are of that period. But on the other hand the tablet was found in a temple of Petuxanu of 21st dynasty, and is clearly a later and altered copy (or an invention) as it contains figures of Osiris, Isis and Horus, Horus, Isis Seth, Pasht?, Khem, the human headed uraeus, and sacred bark, which are not found on the early monuments: beside which the mention of the sphinx in it is only an incidental topographical allusion, not essential to the tablet. The allusion by Thothmes IV is also not conclusive, and it is of doubtful critical value concerning a king who reigned 1000 or 2000 years earlier. The strongest positive argument for the late date of the sphinx is that no drawing of a sphinx in symbols, or hieroglyphs, & no statue, is known before the Hyksos; the black granite Hyksos sphinx in Bulak being the earliest I believe. Was it not then an Asiatic idea (see the Assyrian human-headed animals) imported by the Hyksos? To them seems due the notion of burying images of slaves with a body, none such being known before their epoch, and this being a form of the Asiatic custom of burying strangled slaves with a great funeral.'

Notes on Granite Temple

Giza (Gîza). Pyramid Complex of Khafra (Khafre; Khephren). Valley Temple.
Notes opposite photographs on page 19 which read:
'The Granite Temple stands on the plain at the foot of the pyramid hill of gizeh; and was about 40 or 50 feet high, when unencumbered originally. It had probably two entrances, one at the N.E., and one at the S.E. corner; and from the N. end of the W. side a causeway led askew out of the temple, directly (No 365) up to the door of the temple on the E. side of the Second pyramid, which is exactly similar to it in the character of the building. This granite temple consisted of a great hall of granite with colonades (No 376) about 22 1/2 feet high; and on the roof an open court of limestone, now stripped of its casing all but one corner (No 368). The great hall is T shaped, 77 feet long & 86 feet across. The lesser hall is 60 feet long and 12 1/2 ft wide. The court on the top is 103 feet by 86 feet.
The fact of a skew passage being part of such a regular and well-oriented building, shews a strong necessity for it; and therefore that the place to which it led must have been built before this temple; which must then be after, or in the end of the reign of Chefren of the fourth dynasty. The great statue of Chefren in the Bulak Museum was found, with smaller statues, in a well in the lesser hall; the cynocephalus ape now lying there is probably the oldest idol known.
Thought the Sphinx is placed near this temple it has no known connection with it.

In the bottom right hand corner of the page there is also the note: 'See over for plan.'.

Notes on the Pyramid of Sakkara

Saqqara (Saqqâra). Step Pyramid of Neterikhet (Djoser).
Notes read:
'The Pyramid of Sakkara has been thought to be of the first dynasty by Mariette, but without any proof; its being so much like the pyramid of Medum, and unlike any other, makes it most likely at least to belong to a time before the fourth dynasty.
The finished coats of casing inside the structure are very important, shewing repeated additions; the innermost now visible is almost in the middle of the South face, and shews the pyramid to have been mainly added to on the West and North, and to have been not half the size at first that it is now; yet as the chamber is under the middle, that seems to have been made later than the pyramid.
None of the final casing remains visible, & all the earlier casings are seen in section.'

Notes on the pyramid of Abu Roash

Abu Rawash (Abû Rawâsh). Pyramid of Radjedef (Razedef).
Notes read:
'The pyramid of Abu Roash is perhaps before the fourth dynasty. Its builder was Ramen... [<-N5-mn-//->], probably one of the earlier unclassed Menkara kings, as Menkara of the fourth is known already at Gizeh, the third pyramid being his. the bit of cartouche I found on a scrap of a diorite statue(?) which lay among the chips of granite sarcophagus, &c, just before the doorway. That the pyramid was finished is clear by the finding of traces of sarcophagus & statue, and by the large heaps of chips of worked granite left around it, from cutting the granite casing to pieces at a later time.
The lining of the rock-hewn passage and chamber was torn out 40 or 50 years ago: the chamber, now 30x70 ft, would be narrowed by lining enough to be roofed by slanting slabs [drawing] as usual. That there was granite in part of the inside is shewn by the large heaps of chips reaching some way in front of the entrance.'
