Corpus of Nabataean Inscriptions

The Corpus of Nabataean inscriptions on DASI has been accomplished thanks to the agreement with the CNRS laboratory UMR 8167 – Mondes Sémitiques, under the scientific supervision of L. Nehmé. Presently it includes all the tomb inscriptions from Hegra.

The first step of the project concerns a selection of Nabataean inscriptions and graffiti from various regions of the Nabataean Kingdom, from southern Syria to north Arabia, which will be entered in the database. These will include, in addition to the tomb inscriptions from Hegra, important texts from Petra and the Hawran (epitaphs, dedications, etc.). Since 90% of the Nabataean inscriptions are graffiti, a selection of those will also be entered in the database so that they are represented.
