The satellite pyramid of Meidum and the problem of the pyramids attributed to Snefru (p. 1)

Franck Monnier

By focusing on archaeological data collected by Ernest Mackay in the early 20th century, this article proposes a revised reconstruction for the satellite pyramid of Meidum. This correction is followed by a discussion of who was responsible for constructing the main Meidum pyramid, and provides an opportunity to place all of the subsidiary pyramids within the giant tomb building program of Snefru, for the first time. The result is a comprehensive reassessment of the sequence of construction phases for the funerary sites of this king.
