Chapter Summary

This chapter contains a picture of the Khirbat Ghuwaynah at-Taḥtā inscription. It is a broken slab of natural, undressed limestone, 0.155x0.08m. The inscription could have come from a gate of a private dwelling. The inscription has two lines, in excellent early 8th century angular script that are reminiscent of the monumental inscriptions of ͑Abd al-Malik, with no points and no vowels. The reading of the name is not sure, although the writing is very clear. It can also be Ḥiṣn b. Ayyūb.

Keywords: Ḥiṣn b. Ayyūb; Khirbat Ghuwaynah at-Taḥtā; monumental inscriptions
