Claims the labyrinth was found:

During the 19th century, the remains of the Labyrinth were discovered “11½ miles from the pyramid of Hawara, in the province of Faioum.”[27] The Labyrinth was likely modified and added upon “at various times. The names of more than one king have been found there, the oldest name being that of Amenemhat III.[27] “It is unnecessary to imagine more than that it was monumental, and a monument of more than one king of Egypt.”[27]

In 1898, the Harpers Dictionary of Classical Antiquities described the structure as “the largest of all the temples of Egypt, the so-called Labyrinth, of which, however, only the foundation stones have been preserved.”[28]
