underground passages connecting pyramids

The pyramids at Memphis were the pyramids at Giza, for Giza was originally called Memphis (see reference, "Giza formerly Memphis" on Nordan's map from Travels in Egypt and Nubia, 1757, on page 152 of previous chapter).

Many ancient writers supported Herodotus' record of underground passages connecting major pyramids, and their evidence casts doubt on the reliability of traditionally presented  Egyptian history . Crantor(300 BC) stated that there were certain underground pillars in Egypt that contained a written stone record of pre-history , and they lined accessways con-necting the pyramids. In his celebrated study, On the Mysteries, particularly those of the Egyptians, Chaldeans and the Assyrians, Iamblichus, a fourth-century Syrian representa-tive of the Alexandrian School of mystical and philosophical studies, recorded this infor-mation about an entranceway through the body of the Sphinx into the Great Pyramid (2):


This entrance, obstructed in our day by sands and rubbish, may still be traced between the forelegs of the crouched colossus, It was formerly closed by a bronze gate whose secret spring could be operated only by the Magi. It was guarded by
public respect, and a sort of religious fear maintained its  inviolability better than armed protection would have done. In the belly of the Sphinx were cut out galleries leading to the subterranean part of the Great Pyramid. These galleries were so art-fully crisscrossed along their course to the Pyramid that, in setting forth into the passage without a guide throughout this network, one ceasingly and inevitably returned to the starting point.

 It was recorded in ancient Sumerian cylinder seals that the
secret abode of the Anunnaki was "an underground
place. . . entered through a tunnel, its entrance hidden by sand and
by what they call Huwana. . .his teeth as the teeth of a dragon, his
face the face of a lion". That remarkable old text, unfortunately
fragmented, added that "He [Huwana] is unable to move forward,
nor is he able to move back", but they crept up on him from
behind and the way to "the secret abode of the Anunnaki" was no
longer blocked. The Sumerian record provided a probable
description of the lion-headed Sphinx at Giza, and if that great
creature was built to guard or obliterate ancient stairways and
lower passages leading to subterranean areas below and around it,
then its symbolism was most appropriate.


Local 19th-century Arab lore maintained that existing under the
Sphinx are secret chambers holding treasures or magical objects.
That belief was bolstered by the writings of the first-century
Roman historian Pliny, who wrote that deep  below the Sphinx is concealed the "tomb of a ruler named Harmakhis that contains great
treasure", and, strangely enough, the Sphinx itself was once called "The Great Sphinx Harmakhis who mounted guard since the time of the Followers of Horus " . The fourth-century Roman historian Ammianus

Marcellinus made additional disclosures about the existence of subterranean vaults that appeared to lead to the interior of the Great pyramid (3):

Inscriptions which the ancients asserted were engraved on the walls of certain underground galleries and passageswere constructed deep in the dark interior to preserve ancient wisdom from being lost in the flood.

A manuscript compiled by an Arab writer named Altelemsani is preserved in the British Museum, and it records the existence of a long, square, under-ground passage between the Great Pyramid and the River Nile with a "strange thing" blocking the Nile entrance. He related the following episode:

 In the days of Ahmed Ben Touloun, a party entered the Great pyramid through

the tunnel and found in a side-chamber a
goblet of glass of rare colour and texture. As they were leav-
ing, they missed one of the party and, upon returning to seek
him, he came out to them naked and laughing said, "Do not
follow or seek for me " , and then rushed back into the
pyramid. His friends perceived that he was enchanted.

Upon learning about strange happenings under the Pyramid,
Ahmed Ben Touloun expressed a desire to see the goblet of glass.
During the examination, it was filled with water and weighed,
then emptied and re-weighed. The historian wrote that it was
"found to be of the same weight when empty as when full of
water" . If the chronicle is accurate, that lack of additional weight
provided indirect evidence of the existence of an extraordinary
science at Giza.

According to Masoudi in the 10th century, mechanical statues
with amazing capabilities guarded subterranean galleries under the Great Pyramid. Written one thousand years ago, his descrip-
tion is comparable to the computerised robots shown today in
space movies. Masoudi said that the automatons were pro-
grammed for intolerance, for they destroyed all "except those who
by their conduct were worthy of admission". Masoudi contended
that "written accounts of Wisdom and acquirements in the differ-
ent arts and sciences were hidden deep, that they might remain as
records for the benefit of those who could afterwards comprehend
them ". That is phenomenal information, as it is possible that,
since the times of Masoudi, "worthy" persons have seen the mys-
terious underground chambers. Masoudi confessed, "I have seen
things that one does not describe for fear of making people doubt
one's intelligence...but still I have seen them".

In the same century , another writer, Muterdi, gave an account of a bizarre incident in a narrow passage under Giza, where a group of people were horrified to see one of their party crushed to death by a stone door that, by itself, suddenly slid out from the face of the passageway and closed the corridor in front of them.
