This chapter focuses on the Roman province of Arabia and late antique Palaestina III/Salutaris through the lens of two of its most important cities, Petra and Ḥegrā (Madāʾin Ṣāliḥ). These two provinces play a key role in much of this volume as a base of Jafnid power, and through their link with numerous developments, including the emergence of the Arabic script. Also covered here is the dialogue between Greek and Arabic, and transitional, ‘Nabataeo-Arabic’ inscriptions.

Keywords:   Provincia Arabia, Petra, Madāʾin Ṣāliḥ, Nabataeo-Arabic, Graeco-Arabica, Old Arabic, Arabic script, spoken Arabic, Palaestina III, Palaestina Salutaris
