Shaqilath (fl. 70), was a queen of the Nabataeans.
She was the daughter of Aretas IV of the Nabataeans. She ruled jointly with her husband-brother Malichus II (40-70). After his death she was regent for her son Rabel II. Copper and silver coins where she is depicted with her husband and coins of her with her son have been recovered. Some of these coins are dated with regnal years to the left of the queen.
