Graffiti in Himaitic Thamudic engraved on a long rock wall near Ḥimā, north of Najrān (Saudi Arabia). The wall shows numerous overlays. The texts, in particular, are more recent and superimposed on the hunting scenes with bovids. The knights, on the other hand, are noticeably more recent than both the texts and other rock drawings.
