By Tm son of S¹ʿd son of Tm son of {Mʿz} ---- he camped {here} the year King {Agrippa} made a sudden attack on the Province

In this case, the Province would be Syria, since the Province of Arabia did not come into being (AD 105/6) until after the death of Agrippa II in AD 92/93. It is not clear whether grfṣ here refers to Agrippa I (AD AD 37–44) or Agrippa II (AD 5-–92/93).
