Abstract

A part of a Nabataean bronze inscribed object has been found recently in Wadi Musu, near Petra, Jordan. The text, which is dated to the reign of the last Nabataean king, Rabbel II (AD 70-106), is of great interest since it contains words that occur for the first time in Nabataean. It mentions a dedication made by a priest and his son to 'Obodas the God' in Gaia. In sum, it adds significant new data to our knowledge of the Nabataean kingdom and its religion.
