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)

Astria porta

According to this site, the Latin word astrum means constallation, which might have more significance to the Stargate itself. -- SFH 17:12, 15 August 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)

Alteran Alphabet

I don't understand where you find this...

Exact letters

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.'
