Preliminary report of a survey of the Eastern Desert between the ancient Abu Sha'ar–Nile road in the north and the modern Quseir–Nile highway in the south. A number of hitherto unknown ancient sites have been recorded including road segments, road stations on the Abu Sha'ar–Nile road, gold mines, and hard stone quarries. A Latin inscription at one of these, associated with quarrying activities in the region and naming Flavius Diadumenus and Flavius Fortunatus, is here published.
