    Post Jaffa Symbol Identification

    Is anyone able to identify this Jaffa Tattoo/Goa'uld Symbol?

    http://i54.tinypic.com/20kyy4p.gif

    I believe it to be Marduk.

    First youd have to tell us where the pic came from, context is everything.

    It's one of the symbols introduced in SG-Resistance(it think, never played or it could be from fan-fict) , i have no idea who could be , if you look closely you see that there is a name near it so if you have a better quality image post it .

    P.S. According to my calculation it's approximately 8 letters long

    The screen cap looks like it comes from one of those briefings that Daniel did for Eli Wallace.

    That said, I have no idea who it is. I looked around at the known symbols, and its not listed as of yet.

    Sorry for not providing where the image came from, I printscreened for a video on YouTube where Daniel explains about the Goa'uld.

    Let's do a analysis on the symbol , it looks like a eyebrow but we know that Aphrodite is taken ( and Venus because both are Hathor ) maybe another queen like Egeria

    Ask Joe Mallozzi on his blog. The original chart was from the production office at Bridge Studios.

    Maybe he was referring to it because it contains uncanon sources

    maybe but that image came from a video made by the Stargate guys and not by some random person in england who paid for a license to use the stargate name and then completely changed the entire story by claiming that out daniel jackson died and was replaced with an identical one from an alternate reality.

    So, yeah.

    Also the uncanon parts do add to its terribleness but I was thinking more of the sub-par and incomplete articles which compose like 80% of that wiki.

    I did, i was making the point that unless you had knowledge of the uncanon pieces of information then your going to be confused, better to stick to my much better, non-confusing wiki than the one on wikia.

    Anyway we never saw that symbol on tv so where it came from may be unknown, it may be one of those things the writers made up but never made it into an episode, or may just be part of some background decoration on a random jaffa. Probably ask JM on his blog but then again he hasn't answered any sg questions in a while so it may be a while before we ever know for sure.
