This paper studies nine memorial Safaitic inscriptions from the town of Deir al-Kahf in Northern Badiyah, northeast of Jordan, along the Baghdad Highway road. The first seven are found to the east of the town, the other two are from the far north end. It seems that these inscriptions show the sadness and grief over an important person called Bnctm. The paper deals with the verbs and names semantically and syntactically, also considering their parallels in other Semitic languages.
