Could someone please show me the dial home device symbols used to dial Earth from Atlantis?

It's for my son, who will be carving them into stone.

The show's producer was kind enough to share them on his website

    You'd think that such a super-advanced race would have a better writing system...

    @RonJohn I think that these are visual representations of constellations, not a writing system. The stargates in the milky way had a runic-style writing system. Mar 6, 2023 at 19:49

    @Valorum: We do, because C should be used exclusively for the "ch" sound, with S and K being used for the other uses of C. :-) Mar 6, 2023 at 20:24

    @RonJohn Not if the observer is really far away from the items making up the constellation. Constellations comprised entirely of other galaxies would probably all be roughly identical anywhere within a particular galaxy. Mar 6, 2023 at 22:24

    @ZakA.Klajda except constellations are made up of bright stars, which means close stars. Polaris, for example, is only 300-400 light years away. Mar 7, 2023 at 0:10
