From The Stargate Omnipedia
A device of Goa'uld design. It was used by Pelops on the planet Argos to control the nanites that caused the Argosians to live their lives at a greatly accelerated rate.
When the people's conversations with a rapidly aging Jack O'Neill caused them to lose faith with their god they pulled down the temple statue and the device was found hidden inside, broken when the statue fell.
Brief Candle - Jack discovers the nanite controller when he investigates why the villagers haven't woken up.
