Planet originally under the control of the Goa'uld Pelops. The planet features an ideal climate with beautiful skies and landscapes, fresh water and delicious, seductive foods.

A definitive Greek ancestry decorates the structures, as well as the clothing of the Argosians, the planets occupants who prefered to call themselves the Chosen.

For some time Pelops operated on the planet, experimenting on the human population, much like Nirrti has done, attempting to expand their lifespan. However, when Pelops did not return, he had left the entire population in a condition which limited their lives to one or two months in length, accelerating their life-cycles at an incredible velocity.
