A cartouche is an oval or oblong figure in ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs that encloses characters. The coverstones found over the Stargate in Giza, 1928 contained a cartouche with the gate coordinates for the planet Abydos. After traveling through to Abydos, Daniel Jackson found a corresponding cartouche with the gate symbols for Earth. (Stargate)
This cartouche was, with few exceptions, the sole source of gate addresses for the SGC until more were downloaded into Jack O'Neill's mind from the Ancient's Repository of knowledge. (SG1: "The Fifth Race")
