The area labelled WM2B corresponds to the most densely built area in the Wādī Maṭar. It is also caracterised by South Arabic inscriptions dating back to the early 1st mill. BC. Monumental architecture (2 m wide gate) can be seen in several areas. Observation of surface remains and stratigraphy in the soundings carried out since 2017 established a presence dating back to at least the beginning of the 1st mill. BC (Ancient South Arabian phase). Other phases of occupation are attested during the first centuries of the Common Era and later in the 4th-7th cent., which by then is a modest occasional presence. The photogrammetric coverage of the buildings was realised in January 2019 in the frame of the Saudi-French archaeological mission to the Farasan Islands (SCTH, University Paris 1 Panthéon Sorbonne).
