Yathaʾ (Arabic "Savior" يثع) is a pre-Islamic god worshiped by the Sabaeans and Himyarites of Yemen. Nine kings have a theophoric name prefixed by Yathaʾ. The name may be an archaic equivalent to יֵ֫שַׁע (yesha - yeh'-shah), which is a masculine noun meaning 'Salvation.' See Strong's Hebrew: 3468 for details.
