In former years there was a king in Egypt named Snefru, who ruled in Memphis.
The oldest temple in Egypt is perhaps the little chapel in front of the pyramid of Snefru at Mdm.
Then was Snefru wroth, caused this messenger of evil to be scourged, and sent for a second interpreter.
It is very probable that one of them is the second pyramid of Snefru.
In an inscription in the same valley, the oldest which we possess, his predecessor Snefru claims to have subjugated these regions.
With Snefru, at the end of this dynasty, we reach the beginning of Egyptian history as it was known before the recent discoveries.
