Can I Get Some Examples?!!

There are many ancient Egyptian obelisks that have been uncovered from the past. There was one built during the time of King Tuthmosis I. It was 75ft tall and about 160 tons, but that's just a baby compared to some. Another was built by Queen Hatshepsut and weighed in at 700 tons with 100 ft in height. Still not huge if you look at the unfinished obelisk found in a trench that is over 41m tall and 1170 tons! Just think if it had been finished. It is unknown who put the order in to build this monster.
