Abstract

This volume presents the inscriptions recorded in 2004 along the so-called Darb al-Bakrah, an ancient north–south caravan track connecting Hegra with Petra. The inscriptions were found at a number of sites along the track. They are carved in a variety of scripts and languages, among which are Imperial Aramaic, Nabataean, Nabataeo-Arabic, Palmyrene, Ancient South Arabian, Ancient North Arabian (Taymanitic, Dadanitic, Hismaic, Safaitic, Thamudic B, C, and D, etc.), and Greek. The Arabic inscriptions and the rock drawings will be published in separate volumes. The inscriptions are edited by six scholars specialised in the history and epigraphy of ancient Arabia.
