New comparative material supports the interpretation 'sacrificial pit' for the Ugaritic term ġb, which is not attested elsewhere in Northwest Semitic. Ugaritic appears to share the same semantic development from the Proto-Semitic root GYB with Modern South Arabic. A further Ugaritic / Modern South Arabic isogloss has been identified, which is helpful for a revision of the classification of Modern South Arabic within Semitic.
