At least fifteen Nabatean legal documents dating to Qumran period III were found in the Judean desert caves, especially Nahal Hever 5/6 and Wadi Muraba’at. This reflects increased Nabatean influence or presence in Judea in the period between the two Jewish revolts. See for example Baruch A. Levine, “The Various Workings of the Aramaic Legal Tradition: Jews and Nabateans in the Nahal Hever Archive,” in Lawrence H. Schiffman, Emanuel Tov, James C. VanderKam and Galen Marquis, eds., The Dead Sea Scrolls Fifty Years After Their Discovery 1947–1997 (Jerusalem: Israel Exploration Society in cooperation with the Shrine of the Book, Israel Museum, 2000), pp. 836–851.
