During a survey conducted by the authors in the eastern part of al-Ḥarrah in Jordan in 2017,1 a number of new Safaitic and Nabataean texts were found. Some of them mention events dated during the reigns of ḥrṯt and rbʾl, others refer to the revolt of dmṣy. Other Safaitic texts contain references to the Nabataeans. Three Nabataean graffiti were also found and are presented here. These sixteen new texts constitute a remarkable addition to the corpus of Safaitic and Nabatean texts found in this region.
