I'm struggling to find and I'm pretty sure I didn't imagine this: From one of the Stargate's (Movie, SG1, SGA or SGU) - I remember the home symbol being two Anubis? guards leaning into the sun.

However I cant find an image anywhere.

In which movie/series did this show?

It's from the original movie. Daniel was the one who realized that the two squiggles were stick figures and drew them with a sharpie.

It was a pyramid with the sun on top.

From the movie script:

Wait. Do you have

[He looks around, spotting a marker in Mitch's pocket and grabbing it.]

Hey, hey, hey, don't...!

[Daniel has already begun drawing his little stick figures on the actual monitor screen.]

Two figures on either side, praying beside a pyramid with the sun directly above it.

And now... for the REAL fun part!!! The actual prop coverstone in the movie did not have the kneeling figures!!! (it was a production mistake)

Nice! I thought it was from the early days, I wonder why I thought they were Anubis Guards – m.t.bennett Jan 24 '14 at 23:38
So, Daniel thought they were two people praying to the sun, but in actuality it IS a pyramid with the sun above? – m.t.bennett Jan 24 '14 at 23:42
@m.t.bennett - was supposed to be 2 people. Look at model cartouches . This was just bad prop – DVK-in-exile Jan 24 '14 at 23:51
