pri {O1 D21 D54} to go up, ascend

pr n ws {O1 D21 D54 G17 G43 S29 O1} height of a pyramid

I would or was expecting... A28 Y1v

Also... J. Baines writes in "Bnbn: Mythological and Linguistic Notes" "...Interesting problems of a semantic nature are associated with it. The probable antiquity of the stone [bnbn] makes it likely that the word for bread is derived from the word for the stone, on the basis either of a special use (of the bread) or of a similarity in shape (or both). The situation is comparable to the meaning in Greek of the word 'pyramid', i.e. 'cake' (the word 'obelisk' is of course itself a semi-humorous Greek name). The almost startling parallelism might suggest that the Greek usage is based on Egyptian, and that there might be a word for cake *mr to set beside the word for pyramid..."
