Abstract This article examines the Greek epigraphic material kept at the Mu’tah University Museum. It is a collection composed of 23 inscriptions, 20 of them unpublished, which with one exception (no. 1 from Qasr el-Hallabat) originate from the Southern Kerak plateau, mainly from the sites of Ader, Mu’tah, Iraq, Nakhl and Maḥaiy. Apart from a dedication to Artemis (second century AD), all the remaining inscriptions are funerary and date between the late fourth and late sixth century AD. The present epigraphic material not only adds 20 new epitaphs to those hitherto known from Moab, but offers also an interesting onomasticon.
