A stela of Djehuti refers to two obelisks of Hatshepsut
as been 108 cubits in length, ie 57 meters. These would of been the largest obelisks ever erected.
They were almost certainly the obelisks which were at the Eatern end of Ipt-Swt. Only fragments remain,
would Thuthmosis III have pulled them down ???, some doubt that an obelisk could be that size as it may have broken under it's own stress.
I think that it would of being possible, bearing in mind the Queens devotion to Great Amun.
