Neb is never Pip, ever--SAYS WHO?

Says every single foreign ruler who ever addressed a letter to Amenhotep III. That's who.

Shangrila is a modern reference to Shambhala, a mythical kingdom in Tibetan Buddhist tradition, which was sought by Eastern and Western explorers and inspired a novel by a man named Hilton. Names are easily altered. All it takes is the audio perception of a single individual who is capable of writing down that perception.

Nonsense. Hittite royal scribes, Babylonian royal scribes, Mitannian royal scribes, were NOT writing fiction and working from their own individual audio perceptions when it came to transcribing the name of the reigning great king of Egypt. Sorry, that is not how it worked.
