Perhaps, but not necessarily. Don't forget that the word "mer" already has a pyramid (O24) as a determinative. Would you (or they) then put an O26 (obelisk) glyph at the head (or rear) of the word to symbolize "rising" or "shining"? This O26 is the determinative seemingly used in PT 1652b - a word that is actually spelled here in kind of squirrelly way, and so it definitely needs this determinative to clarify things. The point is, though, O26 wouldn't be adding anything that O24 wasn't already providing in the word "mer". If anything, it would confuse things as to what was being meant - that is, was it a pyramid, or was it an obelisk type structure, that was being referred to? Plus, it wouldn't allow you to bring in the symbolic associations of (and magical powers of) both the chisel and the 'b3 scepter. And then there's always the fact that the word "pyramid" was written as it was, and so this is what needs to be explained - not whether something else would have been more appropriate.

On top of which (no pun intended), don't even get me started on whether this is solar or polar imagery that is really being talked about here in PT 1652. Or indeed, in all of Utterance 600.
