Abstract  

The concentration of 226Ra, 232Th and 40K has been determined by -ray spectrometry. The measured activity in the selected building materials and by-products of coal fired power plants ranges from 21.5 to 91.3 Bq·kg–1, 15.4 to 63.2 Bq·kg–1 and 83.2 to 683.9 Bq·kg–1 for 226Ra, 232Th and 40K, respectively. The results were compared with the reported data of other countries and with the world average activity of soil. The radium equivalent activities values of all building materials are lower than the limit of 370 Bq·kg–1, equivalent to a -dose of 1.5 mSv·y–1. The values of the external hazard index and the internal radiation hazard index are less than unity.

Through the examination of direct epigraphic sources, this paper will trace the South Semitic (Ancient South and North Arabian) and Nabataean inscriptions, whereas other Semitic texts will be studied later in a separate study. The paper studies the historical background of coin usage in the Ancient Near East, mainly in the area of ancient South and North Arabia. In addition to the occurrences of the term, an etymological attempt will also be put forward that explains the origins of the term within the Semitic languages.

In 1937 and 1938, a group of high-relief and round statues were uncovered during the joint expedition of the American School of Oriental Research in Jerusalem and the Department of Antiquities in Palestine at the Khirbet et-Tannur Temple, located in Jordan. This expedition was headed by Nelson Glueck (Figs 1, 2). The statues uncovered are important in that they offer considerable information about Nabataean art and religion. This paper concentrates on one of the high-relief statues, called the Atargatis Panel by its excavator, Glueck. It was chosen as a case study for its availability in Amman, Jordan. The other Atargatis statues found at the site are now in the Cincinnati Art Museum in the United States of America. This paper also examines the Nabataean religious beliefs concerning Atargatis and her fertility cult, in addition to the art style of the statue. Furthermore, the digital 3D imaging documentation of the Atargatis statue at The Jordan Museum is presented. Dense image matching algorithms presented a flexible, cost-effective approach for this important work. These images not only provide geometric information but also show the surface textures of the depicted objects. This is especially important for the production of virtual 3D models used as a tool for documentary, educational and promotional purposes.

Abstract  

The study reports an empirical comparison of quality of collaborative research with the quality of individual research. Quality of a paper is measured by the citation rate over the four years following the year of publication. Papers published in fourteen Finance journals between 1987–1991 are sampled. There is no significant difference between the quality of collaborative and individual research. Decision-makers should hesitate in interpreting collaborative research as a definitive sign of ability to produce better research.

The aim of this study is to shed light on a new Ancient North Arabian inscription containing a reference to the Nabataean minister Syllaeus. This inscription is the second from the known corpus of Ancient North Arabian to mention the name of this minister, and could be dated to the last quarter of the 1st century BC. The inscription includes the rare verb ngy which means “to flee”.

The present research is an analytical study of thirteen Safaitic inscriptions collected during a recent survey at Ghadir Abū-Ṭarfa in the northeastern Jordanian desert. This group of inscriptions reveal a good deal of information regarding some linguistic and social aspects of Safaitics. Inscriptions are accompanied by rock art, showing some of the activities of the inscriptions’ authors.
