Where The Heck is it? October, 2017


The badly damaged hieroglyphs on this wall were finally read just last year, and identified the structure as the take-out window for a place knows as “Wally-Hotep’s Pizza.” The large carvings on either side show gods presenting the kings with extra-large, all-meat special pizzas.

Or if you don’t think this is correct:

1. What is the name of this structure?

2. Who is the king in the wall carvings?

If you think you have the solutions to these questions, come to the October meeting with your answers and perhaps you will win a prize!
