The cartouche has been found on the Giza coverstone in 1928. According to the reports, it is 10,000 years old. In 1993, Catherine Langford hired Dr. Gary Meyers for the translation of the coverstone's writting, as well as the cartouche's. Until 1995, no one was able to decypher the meaning of the cartouche (Stargate).
When Doctor Daniel Jackson discovers the Giza coverstone for the first time, Dr. Gary Meyers describes the artefact. According to Jackson the writings in the cartouche are not hieroglyphs, but may be a kind of cuneiform writing. 15 days later, Jacksons finds out that the symbols of the cartouche are actually constellations.
