Much of the focus is on the kingdom of Sabaʾ, and also on the different scripts used to write these inscriptions, on the different types of inscriptions (monumental, texts written in cursive script on wood, etc.), and on questions of trade links and religious belief.

Keywords:   South Arabia, Sabaʾ, Marib, Maryab, inscriptions, Yemen, Karibʾīl Watār
