Title: Note épigraphique
Subtitle: Nouveaux regards sur l'inscription minéenne d'al-'Ulā au Musée du Cinquantenaire à Bruxelles, O.714
Author(s): ROCHE, Marie-Jeanne
Volume: 63 Date: 2021
A Minaic inscription from al-‘Ulā, presently in the Musée du Cinquantenaire, Brussels, is re-examined with new photos. After a survey of the literature commenting this inscription, the reading by A. Jaussen and R. Savignac (1914) is adopted, but with a new interpretation. The onomastics and tribe name of the alleged creditor have parallels in Marginal Minaic and also in Central Minaic. The inscription is a debt recognition document, on a block probably originally inserted in the Wadd temple precinct.
