Some texts of the late Roman Empire use the name "Arabia" for a region in Mesopotamia. The sources and scholarly speculation about origins of the name and the location of the reason are summarized by Dillemann. In BAtlas, T. Sinclair identifies this Arabia with "Tektek Dağ and district of Viranşehir."
