Abstract : The emergence and evolution of the urban networks and their territorial layout are analyzed by focusing on how towns develop functional polarities which combine themselves within the political entities, from the l2th cent. BC to the 6th cent. AD in South-Arabia. The first step goes through the environmental and chronological setting, a critical reading of the sources and the definition of the concepts of town and tribal society in South Arabia. Through short monographs on significant towns being part of regional studies, the second step establishes different urban dynamics. We investigate into the questions of continuity and resilience of the regional settlement pattern. Lastly, a third step sets in a diachronic perspective:
- the processes of emergence and development of towns,
- the functional polarities characterizing the urban framework,
- the mental perception of the South Arabian town by its inhabitants,
- the definition of urban territoriality and the evolution of the urban network.
This systemic study sets the basis for the conception of a model of settlement pattern in pre-Islamic South-Arabia.
