Qasr Bshir, Roman Frontier fort in the Jordanian Desert.

One of the best preserved examples of a roman fort in Jordan, The Latin inscription above the entrance records that it was built in 293–305 AD and was designated as a Praetorian, having the dual use as both the governor’s residence when inspecting the Roman frontier and as a point of contact with desert nomads to maintain peaceful relations with a potentially troublesome group.
