So huge mistake here.
They are sitting in the village there on Abydos having a feast and having fun and then all of a sudden, I hear present day Egyptian dialect in the background.
How is that even possible???
Seriously, how can a 24 year old franchise make such a mistake?? A franchise based on ancient Egyptian and did many scenes both in Egypt and on other planets that spoke different languages.
The Abydos natives cannot speak current day Egyptian. For God's sake, Wasif was struggling to understand them in the scene before that one. Trying to understand them using a language he barely knew through his dead grandmother.
For someone who is in Asia, I've seen even more obvious blatant disregard to proper language translation. In a particular movie, the non English language spoken which is widely used in this region has a TOTAL opposite mismatch to the English subtitle provided (and I'm talking about subtitles provided in the same way the Stargate movie provided English subs for the Abydonian language, not those English sub for the whole movie types. And those scenes were essential to the 3rd act twist). So I can turn a blind eye on this mistake.
Yeah there where many mistakes but this one is the most annoying
Given that the vast majority of off world peoples and species speak English I think that's fairly minor in the grand scheme.
Besides, i think the russian in SG1 wasn't always correct either. In the end, they're not going to reshoot an entire scene because fans from one nation can recognize a mistake that the other 99% of fans won't notice.

why are the Abydonians smoking? wasn't Skarra amazed and surprised seeing O'niell smoke a cigarett , and was also disgusted by it when he tried it , as if he never smoked anything before.
yet here we see them smoking stuff all the time
But I feel responsible to say this: smoking - bad for health! Don't try it! Even O'Neill quit it after Abydos mission.
The feast did say something about Aset’s leadership though—not all the young, able-bodied people were ever in the mines at once and they seemed to have had plenty of food and downtime. Maybe they rotated days in and out of the mine and thought of the duty as more of a job and honor than forced labor, as Kasuf seemed to also. Maybe the food was also shipped in from somewhere? Can jackfruit and lotus roots be grown in the desert? Those were prominent on the table.
