List of Roman governors of Arabia Petraea

This is a list of known governors of the Arabia Petraea. Created in AD 106 following its annexation by the Roman emperor Trajan, it was governed by a senatorial legate until 262, when Gallienus transferred the governorship to equestrian Praesides. It returned to Senatorial appointees with the sole rule of Constantine I after 324, which continued until the province was lost in the 630s.
