From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Malichus II ( Arabic : مالك , Malik ) ruled Nabatea from 40 to 70.

During his reign, Nabataean power decreased. The Romans had diverted the routes of spice and perfume cargo shipments to Egypt. Rome was very powerful, so Malichus cooperated. In 66, a Jewish revolt occurred in Iudaea. Malichus sent 5,000 cavalry and 1,000 infantry to help Titus crush the rebellion.

Under Malichus II, Nabatea lost control of Damascus.
