This interesting pyramid is thought to have been started by Pharaoh Huni, and completed by his son Sneferu, the founder of the IV Dynasty (2613-2494 BCE). It is one of the few pyramids where one does not stop to marvel at the ingenuity of the ancient Egyptian architect. The flawed pyramid began as an eight-stepped structure. The steps were then filled in, and a smooth granite casing put in place, thus turning it into a true pyramid. Unfortunately, it seems that the stress distribution had not been correctly calculated so the outer walls collapsed.
