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.
This inscription recording an unequal alliance between the Spartans and the Erxadieis has been given dates ranging over almost the whole of the Peloponnesian League’s existence: recent arguments for a late date on the grounds of the formulations used are not cogent; the “exiles” mentioned are probably the Messenians settled at Naupactus between c. 455 and c. 400, and the lettering favours either c. 450 or c. 426.

The Karoṣṭhī inscription of Tiravharṇa kṣatrapa (discovered in the suburb of Jalālābād in 1923, kept in the Kabul Museum) was set up in honour of the satrap by a man bearing the Indian name Malaṣua. The purpose of the inscription was to commemorate the building of a lotus tank and its inauguration by the ceremony of libation with running water (udagajaladhobuveṇa), as well as to express the chief desire of the donor to have a son (putreṣtapareṇa). Tiravharṇa was of Indo-Parthian descent and he did not acknowledge the authority of the Saka king Moga, ruling in Gāndhāra at that time (83 ВС).
