Not all agree that it dates to the 2nd Dynasty, an idea based on finds of small amounts of late 2nd or early 3rd Dynasty pottery fragments, i.e. trash, found in the fill. If built in the 3rd Dynasty, which the fragments may just as well date to this time anyways, is it really that surprising to find 2nd Dynasty trash used as fill?

And tens of thousands of 1st Dynasty pottery were found in the Step Pyramid, so by this logic I guess this means it was was built in the 1st Dynasty.
