Sabinos Alexendros Station

This wall of cult-niches and baetyls has been created on behalf of a person named Sabinos who was the master of religious ceremonies to honor Dushara at the ancient town of Adraa (today Dar'a in Syria). He and other masters visited Petra in the 2nd or 3rd century AD to honor Dushara there as well. On the left, there is one of the main niches, dedicated to another deity, Atargatis, seating between two lions (see the next page).
(From information at the site)

At the very end of this wall, before the right turn, there is the Camel Caravan (more about, two pages later).
