The Abydos cartouche was a specific cartouche on which was carved the Stargate address for Earth.

Overview

This cartouche has been carved on a vertical coverstone several thousands years ago imbedded in a wall located in the Abydos caves (Stargate).

History

Several thousands of years ago, unbeknown to Ra, people from Abydos carved this cartouche and hid it inside a cave with explanation writtings in some other room's walls, mostly in the hope to find the Earth Stargate reopen one day (Stargate).

Evolution

Stargate (1995)

When the recon team pass through the Stargate and reach Abydos, Doctor Daniel Jackson is unable to bring them back to Earth as he thought that he could find a writting with the coordinates like the cartouche found at Giza around the Abydos pyramid.

Later, Kawalsky shows Jackson what he found in the Abydos caves. The cartouche show the first six symbols, yet the seventh is missing because of the time erosion, preventing them to return home.
