hi there!

can someone please help me with this question:

There was an Eygptian queen who had a fairy tale written about her and who, it is said, had her own pyramid built.
Yet there was one man who wrote that she could never have been able to build this pyramid. He claimed she did not have the iron obols, therefore she could never have covered such an expense...
Who was this man?

the question is taken from a reversing-page (if you're interested, have a look here). i searched the web for about 3 weeks an couldn't get any hint.
if you have any info/link for me, please be so kind and post here.

thanks for your help,
wol

you seem to have linked us to a riddle site which requires a boring little cypher crack just to get into the site. In effect, the link is useless I'm afraid.

Is that question you are trying to answer for one of the riddles?

yes the question is part of the 13th riddle in there.
i've you're really interested in ciphers and stuff, you may read the intro on the page i posted.

by accident i found the answer to my question about 15minutes after posting here.

the queen is Rodopis and the man i was looking for is Herodotus, a greek historian. (link)

i'm sorry for not doing my homework very well...

that's alright thanks, I've had enough of ciphers to last me a lifetime and am otherwise riddling engaged.

Congrats on passing.

If you're really interested in Egypt and stuff, you may be interested in reading the pages of this forum and site. Some good stuff here Smile
