“Little Petra” is the name given to “Siq el Barid” (“The Cold Canyon” in Arabic), a gorge similar to PEtra’s “Siq” which was also built by the Nabateans. It is about 450 m long, and was probably a suburb of Petra.
In 2010 a ceiling painted with typical Roman deocarations was discovered above a “Biclinium”. The depiction of grapes and Dionysus seems to indicate it is Roman rather then Nabatean.
