About Arabian Epigraphic Notes

The Arabian Peninsula contains one of the richest epigraphic landscapes in the Old World, and new texts are being discovered with every expedition to its deserts and oases. Arabian Epigraphic Notes is a forum for the publication of these epigraphic finds, and for the discussion of relevant historical and linguistic issues. AEN is an open-access journal, published by the Leiden Center for the Study of Ancient Arabia (LeiCenSAA) and archived by the Leiden University Library.

More information about the journal can be found here.
