The Pharaonic Tayma inscription is a hieroglyphic petroglyph near the oasis of Tayma in Tabuk province. It was discovered by local archaeologists in 2010. The rock engraving was found around 400 km north of Madinah and northeast of the ancient Nabatean site of Madain Saleh. It marks the first confirmed hieroglyphic epigraph discovered in the Kingdom.

According to the SCTA Vice President for Antiquities and Museums Ali Ibrahim Al-Ghabban, the petroglyph contains an inscription belonging to the 20th dynasty Pharaoh Ramses III (r.1192 B.C.to 1160 B.C.).
