Well apparently there is more there than I thought ... this from Wiki ...

... The ziggurat was built by the Sumerian King Ur-Nammu and his son Shulgi in approximately the 21st century BCE (short chronology) during the Third Dynasty of Ur. The massive step pyramid measured 210 feet (64m) in length, 150 feet (46m) in width and over 100 feet (30m) in height.

and this ...



The ruins of the Great Ziggurat of Ur, taken in 2005 CE near Ali Air Base in Iraq.

The ziggurat was built by the Sumerian King Ur-Nammu and his son Shulgi in approximately the 21st century BCE (short chronology) during the Third Dynasty of Ur. The massive step pyramid measured 210 feet (64m) in length, 150 feet (46m) in width and over 100 feet (30m) in height. The height is speculative, as only the foundations of the Sumerian ziggurat have survived.

The ziggurat was a piece in a temple complex that served as an administrative center for the city, and which was a shrine of the moon god Nanna, the patron deity of Ur.

The construction of the ziggurat was finished in the 21st century BCE by King Shulgi, who, in order to win the allegiance of cities, proclaimed himself a god. During his 48-year reign, the city of Ur grew to be the capital of a state controlling much of Mesopotamia.


Now there are two main sekeds used at Giza and in Egypt: seked 5.5 AND seked 5

The Great Pyramid (to most) is seked 5.5 shown by The White Temple in Sumeria and by The great Pyramid in Egypt

and now we have this ziggurat at 210 feet by 150 feet which reduces down to 7 by 5 or seked 5

seked 5 by the way is tan 1.4 and is 54.46 degrees and is one of the angles at the base of The Bent Pyramid.

Now who would have thought (well I have for a very long time) that the measurement ratios used in Egypt seemed to maybe have been used first in Mesopotamia namely at Sumer.

Now these measurements are only approximation as I hardly think the ancient Sumerians measured in feet but maybe inches smiling smiley 210 feet = 2520 inches which using The Egyptian Cubit of 20.62 inches = 122.2 and is basically showing us the 9 of 9*11 (9*122.2 = 10.99) while 150 feet = 1800 inches and = 87.30 cubits. If we use the Nippur Cubit of 20.42 inches we get 2520 / 20.42 = 123.4 Nioour Cubits while 150 feet = 1800 inches = 88.15 Nippur Cubits so it is for the moment difficult to be certain which cubit was used if any.

Now the height is tentatively given a value of 30 meters or 11.81.1 inches or 98.45 feet so the angle to the top becomes 1/2 of 210 which is 105 / 98.45 = 98.45 / 105 = 0.9374 and gives us an angle of 43.14 and incredibly close to the top portion of The Bent Pyramid and we also have 150 / 2 = 75 / 98.45 = 98.45 / 75 = 1.31233 and gives us an angle of 52.69

And in this image I posted above the ratio of the slope on the left or the stairway is in the ratio of ... well what else would it be but 1, 2 and the square root of 5 so that would mean that the present landing that has survived would be about 52.5 feet. Anybody want to bet agaisnt me ?

Here is a reconstruction.



However of all the measurements that could have been chosen it was 5 by 7 that was chosen here in Sumeria as well. Don't you ever wonder why ?
