Wasn't the Ancients word for themselves Anqueetas? I usually watch SG-1 with the closed captions on (I realize it seems weird) and the words were "Noo Ani Anqueetas" in the captions. Also, legs was spelled with a "c" instead of a "k". -- SFH 18:22, 21 June 2006 (UTC)
Wrong. Astrum (Plural: astra) is star, but it is an loanword from Greek astron (and thus more likely to be found in Latin texts after Cicero), having exactly the same meaning as stella. Kamikashi 16:35, 23 September 2008 (UTC)
I don't understand where you find this...
Janus2212 15:31, 16 July 2009 (UTC). You can find several versions of the Ancient alphabet on many font providing sites, just search Ancient(s) font.
I have two questions about letters.
1.) why are letters U and F totaly the same? Isn'i it some mistake?
2.) I found earlier alphabet where were letters Q and X substitute for each other. Which version is the right one?

Arent there many dialects of in ancient language? as well as many different writings.—Tau'ri 21300 04:38, 10 December 2008 (UTC)
- Yes.—Anubis 10545 04:48, 10 December 2008 (UTC)
- The writing seen in The Torment of Tantalus is the same as the writing on the stairs in the gateroom of Atlantis. Notice the stairs. So in the stargate universe, I can't recall there being a different alphabet or syllabary. Now whether or not the writing ever means anything other than a jumble of nonsensical letters, is another matter. —Ka'lel 04:51, 10 December 2008 (UTC)
- In a few episodes of SG-1, the Tok'ra said that Anubis wrote something in the oldest dialect of Ancient, and that they have not been able to translate it.—Anubis 10545 04:59, 10 December 2008 (UTC)
ancient meaning of "key"
latin: clavis ancient clavia
however the "Clava Thessara Infinitas" page states that it is Ancient for 'Key to Infinite Treasure.'
