A Nabatean temple dating to the first half of the first century AD was discovered by marine archaeologists on the seabed of the ancient Roman port of Puteoli, or modern Pozzuoli. Two Nabatean altars were found in the temple, which was dedicated to the chief Nabatean god Dushara. The Nabateans’ kingdom was located primarily in the desert east of the Jordan River, extending south to the rock-hewn city of Petra. However, being great traders, they established a commercial base at the port city of Puteoli. The ancient city was submerged in the fourth century as the sea level of the Mediterranean rose. This is the first Nabatean temple discovered outside of their traditional territory. The Nabatean king Aretas IV is mentioned in 2 Corinthians 11:32–33.
