Corpus of South Arabian Inscriptions

CSAI has in its repository digitized images from the British, Beirut National, and Yemeni Museums as well as inscriptions from Jordan. Registration is required but free.

Here's a blurb from the home page:
The objective of the CSAI project, which began in 1999 is to collect the published Ancient South Arabian inscriptions. New corpora have been added in recent years: the catalogue of the British Museum inscriptions, and those of a number of Yemeni museums. For the first time, texts written in minuscule writing are also included into the database. Up to the present, the published corpus of non-monumental texts from south Arabia is relatively small, but a big edition of new texts is going to be published.
