Sabaean Kingdom, South Arabia, 2nd - 3rd Century A.D.
The Sabaeans were an ancient people speaking an Old South Arabian language who lived in what is today Yemen, in the south west of the Arabian Peninsula. Some scholars suggest a link between the Sabaeans and the Biblical land of Sheba. The Sabaean Kingdom was conquered by the Himyarites in the late 3rd century.
