" Ancient Egyptian Pharaoh May Be the 1st Known 'Giant' " (Live Science - Charles Q. Choi, 04.08.2017)

Quote:
The supposed remains of Sa-Nakht, a pharaoh of ancient Egypt, may be the oldest known human giant, a new study finds. ...

... Prior work suggested that the skeleton of the man — who would have stood at up to 6 feet 1.6 inches (1.987 meters) tall — may have belonged to Sa-Nakht, a pharaoh during the Third Dynasty. Previous research on ancient Egyptian mummies suggested the average height for men around this time was about 5 feet 6 inches (1.70 m), said study co-author Michael Habicht, an Egyptologist at the University of Zurich's Institute of Evolutionary medicine. ...

Greetings, Lutz.
