Who Were The Nabateans?

The Nabataean kingdom at Petra – ‘the rose-red city’ – flourished from the 5th century BC and controlled an area extending from the Gulf of Aqaba to the Dead Sea, including a part of northern Hijaz. It lost its independence in the first century BC when it became a vassal of Rome.
