An Open Access Online Journal on Arabian Epigraphy.
The Kanit Museum is the newest, smallest, and least-known of all Yemeni museums. In this paper, the Sabaean inscriptions that are displayed here are published so as to preserve them for future reference and to add to the so far limited knowledge of Kanit in general.
This paper proposes a new chronological classification of the Ancient South Arabian inscriptions of the first millennium BCE. Our proposal is based on recent archaeological and epigraphic discoveries, as well as synchronisms with external sources. These data contradict the traditional paleography-based dating and invalidates paleography as a method of dating the South Arabian inscriptions.
