Cartago, also known as Chartago and designated P3X-1279 by the Tau'ri, was a planet in the Milky Way galaxy which was home to the Byrsa and held a Stargate. The planet was a frequent target of host raids, where the Goa'uld would come to acquire hosts for implantation. Unlike many planets, this planet was not ruled by the Goa'uld, but was periodically visited by them instead. (SG1: "Cor-ai")
Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]
- The name of this world, Cartago, is Latin for Carthage, the great rival empire of Rome. This might suggest that the Byrsa might be descendants of the Carthaginians, though this is unknown.
- Byrsa was also the walled citadel above the harbour in ancient Carthage, and the name of the hill it rested on. This lends further support of the connection between the Byrsa and Carthage.
