Corpus of Dadanitic Inscriptions (work in progress)
There are considerable numbers of monumental inscriptions and graffiti in the Dadanitic script in and around the oasis of Dadan (modern al-ʾUlā), in north-west Arabia. Unfortunately, there are as yet no firm data on which to base a chronology of the Dadanitic inscriptions and all that can be said is that, at present, they are thought to date from the second half of the first millennium BC.
The monumental Dadanitic inscriptions are at present being entered into DASI and the data from these will be shared with the Online Corpus of the Inscriptions of Ancient North Arabia (OCIANA) of the University of Oxford, which begins work on 1st October 2013.
