Although I can't find it now, I recall seeing a post by Elizabeth Hind on HM that she was going to share a paper on problem no. 10 of the Moscow Mathematical Papyrus that she had presented. I also recall that she said she took the view that the problem dealt with finding the area of a hemisphere. Can anyone point me in the right direction here? I believe the post was from 2001.
