The inscription on the statue of Khasekhem actually reads 40,000 + 7,000 + 200 + 9.

There are no zeros, simply an omission of the symbol for ten.

It is simpler to explain obvious things using modern notation.

Numbers are numbers without the decimal system of place value or zeros, and John Taylor's insight into numbers appears to shine a light on ancient Egyptian numbers.

That's the case I want to present, and even if not so such a perspective does highlight the coincidences between the design of the Coffer and the natural divisions of numbers adopted in the English system of measurement. Those coincidences are, however, not surprising if you understand the numbers, but would seem peculiar to those who don't understand numbers.

John Taylor's book has been republished by Cambridge University Press, so I think his insight should not be neglected, even though it is flawed with regard to a historical link.

It's not about numbers proving anything, but weighing the evidence in the balance, and Taylor had a remarkable insight into weights and measures.
