Online Corpus of the Inscriptions of Ancient North Arabia


Support typeRock inscription
Notes on support and decorationsU 007 was carved in the small, irregular space remaining between U 003, U 008, and U 014, all of which must have been carved before it. As a result, the lines of U 007 are of different lengths. Because U 008 have already been carved in the space immediately below line 3 of this text, the three letters of line 4 have to be carved in a small space immediately before U 008/1.
