Description

Rabbbel II was the last ruler of semi-independent Nabataea.

Nabatea was a locally powerful Arab kingdom in what is now Jordan. Petra was their capital. In their prime the Romans had to deal with them. The deal brought them more and more into the Roman system. They were annexed in the reign of Trajan.

Ancient Coins includes Greek and Roman coins and those of neighbors and successors, geographically from Morocco and Spain all the way to Afghanistan. Date ranges for these begin with the world’s earliest coins of the 8th century BC to, in an extreme case, the end of Byzantine Empire, 1453 AD.
