One more thing to consider, when Belzoni arrived in the chamber he soon realized the Arabs had already opened the sarcophagus, we don't know if the bones were original nor do we know how many and if they were foreleg offerings...was the entire bull entombed? And, perhaps more important we don't know what the Arabs found, does it make any sense that they would remove the bones of a person (king)? or does it make sense that they opened the sarcophagus and found only the bones of a bull and left them there as they found them? of course for all the trouble of getting there one of them may have taken the skull and horns as a souvenir... I know I would have. smiling smiley

I don't recall animal bones intermixed with deceased royals, my impression is the bull doesn't represent food (offering) for the afterlife but symbolically represents the bull-god Apis or Mnevis.

"From the first dynasty, the "manifestation of the king" was firmly connected with the "course of the Apis bull." ... "According to the Late period Greek historian Manetho, only in the second dynasty was the Apis bull installed as a god in Memphis - with its own shrine or an external stone image of a bull in stride. The Apis god of Memphis that protected the king and the residence, however, must be sharply distinguished from the holy Apis bull of the Memphite festival procession. ... The renewal ritual of the bull god included the royal sacrifice of the bull, his ritual killing, and his transformation into Osiris, god of the dead."

"Theologically, the Mnevis bull god of Heliopolis had many parallels with Apis as a royal god - both turned over the goddess Maat to the heavenly sun god (Atum and Re) at the first creation. Perhaps the origin for the Mnevis bull of Heliopolis was an archer with the head of a bull, derived from comparable later archers with the head of a bull, which were erected at the royal sed-festival ... Depending on the text, Apis was Ptah, Ptah-Sokar-Osiris, Geb-Shu, Osiris, Re, Atum, and/or Horus - or as later texts say, "all in One"." (Dieter Kessler)

It is established that the necropolis' were occupied by the afterlife gods, it was there domain on earth, there is reasonable cause to speculate a sarcophagus inside a pyramid containing the bones of a bull could be the symbolic burial of the Mnevis or Apis bull god... I prefer Mnevis as pyramids are directly connected to Heliopolis.

Best,
