During a survey of the southern sector of the Ḥaurān in Jordan conducted in 1996–7, a number of new Nabataean Aramaic texts were found scattered among the ruins of the late antique village of Umm al-Jimāl. All the new texts appear to be funerary stelae and were found in secondary contexts, taken probably from the adjacent necropolis of the earlier town of al-Herri'. Most of them date probably to the first century AD. With the other recently published Nabataean texts from Umm al-Jimāl, these fourteen new texts expand the existing corpus from the settlement to almost fifty, the most from any town in this region of the Ḥaurān with the exception of Boṣrā in Syria.
