How did the pre-Islamic Arabian nomads of the Harrah conceptualize death and memorialize the lost? A long overdue paper in lecture form (Princeton TRI lunchtime lecture): ?

The way you discussed 'manay' in these inscriptions reminded me of a line in Zuhayr b. Abi Sulma's Mu'allaqa - would you say the two concepts match up? رأَيْتُ المَنَايَا خَبْطَ عَشْوَاءَ مَنْ تُصِبْ تُمِـتْهُ وَمَنْ تُخْطِىء يُعَمَّـرْ فَيَهْـرَمِ

They do indeed and reflect the same cultural background, I think.
