Qanawat, the place of the Qanats,
here ended one of the other known aqueducts for water supply in this region. One of this aqueducts owes its name to the governor of Syria, Aulus Cornelius Palma, who conquered the province of Arabia Petraa at the time of Emperor Trajan and brought it to bloom. The Qanat Fir'aun is very likely to be built a little bit later (around 170 aD), due to the reason that the region of Arabia Petraea was incorporated into the Roman Empire after AD 108. Qanawat has many archaeological evidence whose area recently, inter alia, was researched through the DAI by Dr. Freiberger.
