By the way, the largest and oldest pyramid contains no tomb and also has no Egyptian hierglyphics or writing in it, other than some graffiti that later fortune hunters left.
If you refer to Nubian pyramids, in the "cradle of civilization", they were constructed at a much steeper angle than Egyptian ones and were not tombs, but monuments to dead kings. Hard to believe, but egyptians built memorials to themselves, Greeks and Romans built bathhouses and coliseums for the public.....cradle of civilization....bahhh.

No, I am referring to the largest of the three well known pyramids at Ghiza.
