Abstract

The Awām temple (modern Maḥram Bilqīs) is located near the ancient Sabaean capital of Mārib, about 160 km to the east of the Yemeni capital Sanaʿāʾ. Previous work here included investigations by the American Foundation for the Study of Man (AFSM) expedition in 1952 led by Wendell Phillips, and the more recent AFSM excavations under its president Merilyn Phillips, which together have exposed one of the most significant architectural complexes in ancient South Arabia. The main concern of this paper is the presentation of the different architectural phases of construction in relation to the Peristyle Hall and to set these phases within the time frame presented by the occupational history of the Awām temple.
