I haven't found the video where they mention 200ton stones, yet. But I did find
. I'm looking at #5, #8, #13, #14, #21, #22, #25f, etc...
Wow, that is one dishonest website.This picture
is either photoshopped or uses a distorted perspective to make the temple look huge compared to the pyramid.
Here is the relevant text from wiki:
Reisner estimated that some of the blocks of local stone in the walls of the mortuary temple weighed as much as 220 tons, while the heaviest granite ashlars imported from Aswan weighed more than 30 tons. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pyramid_of_Me...#Temple_complex
"Local stone" means that it wasn't moved very far from where it was quarried, which is certainly within the means of the Ancient Egyptians.
Half of the other examples throw around "100 tons" and "200 tons" without any source material, and with images that do not show any stones of that size.
#5 was constructed within the Roman Era by Herod the Great, definitely not too difficult to construct with Roman-Era technology.
#8 See above
#13 I couldn't find any non-cranky documentation of this
#14 The website is incorrect about the placement of the blocks. They were part of the temple complex, not the pyramid.
#21 I'm seeing 200 tons as the largest recorded on site, not 400
#22 They don't mention which pyramid at Dahshur they are referring to. There are several, and I don't see any made out of brick.
#25f This one seems accurate
So far I have yet to see a 200 ton stone used in pyramid construction, but I don't even see why that's a problem for ancient engineers.
