Arabian gods #4

#4 Al-Qaum
Al-Qaum (Arabic: القوم‎) was the Nabataean god of war and the night, and guardian of caravans.

Large numbers of inscriptions bearing his name have been found, and archaeologists believe that he was a major god of the Nabataean pantheon.

Al-Qaum however also literally translates to ‘the people’ in formal Arabic, it might just be referring to a group of people at the time as an entity.
