The Ring Ceremony is a funerary custom among the Athosians. When an Athosian dies, their body is placed with in a stone ring, in honor of the Stargate|Ring of the Ancestors. A group of Athosians then gather, while one sings about how the deceased's journey begins. The event is reserved for those who die of natural causes—a rare event due to the Wraith. {{Cite|ATL|Critical Mass}}
