Al-‘Alāqāt al-siyāsiyya bayna mamlakat Saba’ wa-mudun mamālik al-Jawf fī’ ḍaw’ naqsh saba’ī jadīd min al-qarn al-sābi‘ qabla al-mīlād »

Abstract : This is an investigation of a new dedicatory Sabaean inscription from the ancient site of Kamna (old Kaminahū), in wadi al Jawf in Yemen. This new inscription emphasizes the gradual control of the Kingdom of Saba’ over the City-States of al Jawf through assigning rulers affiliating the kings of Saba’. The author of this inscription is one of the men of the Mukarrib of Saba’ – Karb’īl Watār, and his son Sumhū‘Alī -, as the Sabaean mukarrib’s agent in Kamna. On the basis of the paleography style, and of the mention of the names of mukarribs of Saba’, it is possible to attribute the new inscription to the first half of the 7th century BC.
