Need reference for pyramid workers paid in food[edit]

We're going to need a reference for "Archaeological excavations have revealed that workers on the Great Pyramids of Giza were paid in bread, beer, and onions". I've tagged it as citation needed. I thought this was a myth started by Herodotus whose interpret, when asked what an inscription on a pyramid said, but unable to read the hieroglyphics looked at the onion shaped symbol and concocted a story that it was the number of onions fed to the workers.

Mistakes in the article[edit]

I am Egyptian and I have found several mistakes with the content in this article but I can't change it because I don't have actual citations for the correct information. What was labelled as "dakka" is actually pronounced as "do'a" in Egypt (In IPA I believe it is something like dʊʔa) and if you click the link, the main article is called "duqqa" which is much closer to the actual pronunciation (Egyptians tend to pronounce the Arabic letter ۋ "qaf" as a glottal stop). It is also repeated 3 times in the article, under 2 different spellings, so that should probably be corrected

I am Coptic and the article claims "Observant Copts adhere to fasting periods according to the Coptic calendar; these may practically extend to more than two-thirds of the year for the most extreme and observant. The more secular Coptic population mainly fasts only for Easter and Christmas." The first sentence is correct, but the second is not. The mainstream Coptic population usually fasts for Lent (the 55 days preceding Easter), the Nativity Fast (the 40 days preceding Christmas), St. Mary's Fast (2 weeks in August), Jonah's fast (3 days, 2 weeks before Lent begins), and many also fast the Apostles Fast (from Pentecost to the Feast of the Apostles, usually in June). The most "observant Copts" also fast on Wednesdays and Fridays all year round except for the 50 days after Easter. But most Copts at least usually fast for St. Mary's Fast and Jonah's Fast in addition to Lent and Nativity.

The article also includes a few foods that are not common in Egyptian everyday food but leaves out many that are much more common. Monicake (talk) 18:16, 17 March 2015 (UTC)

External links modified[edit]

Hello fellow Wikipedians,

I have just added archive links to one external link on Egyptian cuisine. Please take a moment to review my edit. You may add {{cbignore}} after the link to keep me from modifying it, if I keep adding bad data, but formatting bugs should be reported instead. Alternatively, you can add {{nobots|deny=InternetArchiveBot}} to keep me off the page altogether, but should be used as a last resort. I made the following changes:

When you have finished reviewing my changes, please set the checked parameter below to true or failed to let others know (documentation at {{Sourcecheck}}).

Question? Archived sources still need to be checked
