    I remember reading that. Some say that hole was where the bolt went to hold the head of the Sphinx on others say it was a support hole for the crown. There are multiple tunnels and caverns all under the Giza necropolis ,some natural, some man made. Its an interesting place maybe one day Zahi Hawass will let us all have a look at the underground facilities. He has seen them so they are there. :)

    I'm reading Peter Moon's book Pyramids of Montauk: Explorations in Consciousness. He wrote the sphinx depicts the Egyptian cat goddess Bast.

    The face on Mars is said to be human on one side and feline on the other.

    What and where was the hall of records?
    Is it possible it still exists?

    It's believed to be a repository of knowledge under the Giza plateau. If it has been located the powers that be wouldn't tell the general public.

    Don't think they will. Billionaires have been known to want to buy some things in there but the doors are firmly sealed. Whatever it is ( if anything ) they don't want us messing with the Sphinx. '

    Silver Denarius 2nd September 31 BC Actium Greece. This coin was probably there as the battle of Actium was fought between the forces of Cleopatra and Marc Antony against Octavian. 12th Legion coin made from base metal silver by Marc Antony to appease his cash strapped and deserting Legions. Mounted in 14 ct gold.

    An Egyptian toilet seat. A luxury only for the privileged the peasants had wooden ones or took a dump in the desert.

    Ancient mummies with golden tongues unearthed in Egypt

    The mummies were found in a series of rock-cut tombs in Alexandria's Taposiris Magna temple in northern Egypt by a team of archaeologists from Egypt and the Dominican Republic.

    While the bodies themselves were poorly preserved, one thing stood out straight away - each of them had a golden 'tongue' (an amulet coated in gold foil) placed inside their mouths.

    It is believed that the real tongues had been removed during the embalming process and replaced with the gold replicas as a way to help the deceased speak to Osiris - the Egyptian god of the underworld.

    Further depictions of Osiris were also found in various forms around the tomb. In addition to the gold tongues, the team discovered other artefacts including the funeral mask of a woman, the remnants of a golden wreath and eight marble masks. Coins bearing the image of Queen Cleopatra VII had previously been found there as well.
