"By all means let the old theories have a decent burial; though we should take care that in our haste none of the wounded are buried alive."
Written by Sir William Matthew Flinders Petrie in his book "The Pyramids and Temples of Gizeh" in 1880, (S5-[S3]-P4-[C2]-L41). *

We can conclude the measures of smaller structures were defined as a simple fraction of cubits or in natural numbers of remens, hands (palms) or fingers. see section 5.5.19 in the Grand Gallery chapter.
