Quaderni di Arabia Antica 2

Ancient South Arabian within Semitic, and Sabaic within Ancient South Arabian

The second issue of Quaderni di Arabia Antica reviews a recent theory put forward by P. Stein.

This theory is based on the hypothesis, initially presented by N. Nebes in 2001, on the relationships between Sabaic and the North-West Semitic, and between Sabaic and non-Sabaic languages in southern Arabia.

Contrary to the two German scholars, the author maintains that the endogenous formation model for ASA culture and languages is more coherent with the linguistic and archaeological data known today.
