    "Early evidence points toward use of an approximation for the length of 'circumference' with respect to its 'radius' (~ 3 1/7) in the designs of the pyramids in Egypt. The Great Pyramid (2500 BC) was built with a perimeter of 1760 royal cubits (1 royal cubit ~ 20.64 inches or 525 mm) and a height of 280 cubits; the ratio 1760/280 ~ 2π ~ 6.29. (N ~ 3.14)"
