''The Egyptians were notoriously bad astronomers compared to the Babylonians'' -- Byrd

The ancient Egyptian lunar cycle of 309 lunar months in 25 calendar years of 365 days is several times more precise than the Julian calendar introduced in (46 BC?) in which an extra day was added to the calendar year of 365 days every 4 years. What was the most precise Babylonian cycle?

The number of days in an Egyptian lunar month was therefore (365 x 25)/309 = 29.5307 days so close to reality with an error of about a day every 500 years rather than a day every 125 years in the Julian calendar.

The east wall above the niche for the king's statue in the so-called Queen's Chamber of the Great Pyramid leans in 34/25 digits as calculated from Petrie's angle of 14 arc minutes and the vertical height to the peak of the chamber.

Therefore the number of days in an Egyptian lunar month equates to the ratio of the length of the chamber into the niche (365 digits) to the wall to wall length (309 digits) multiplied by the ratio of the displacement of the niche from the centre of the chamber at floor level (34 digits) to the lean-in of the east wall 34/25 digits:

Number of days in month = (365/309) x 34/(34/25) = 29.5307..

The easiest way to represent this cycle was as 309 month x 29.5307.. days per month = 25 x 365 days = 25 x 365 x 34/25 digits = 440 cubits + 90 digits

But the architect chose to conceal this wisdom under the pavement of the east side of the pyramid with the east side of the corner sockets longer than the true base square by 45 digits at each end, so 440 cubits + 90 digits as drawn on page 142 of my monograph on the Grand Gallery

What could be simpler?
