Archaeological finds date back to the Neolithic period, and the city was first documented in the early second millennium BC. Palmyra changed hands on a number of occasions between different empires before becoming a subject of the Roman Empire in the first century AD. The city grew wealthy from trade caravans; the Palmyrenes were renowned merchants who established colonies along the Silk Road and operated throughout the Roman Empire. Palmyra's wealth enabled the construction of monumental projects, such as the Great Colonnade , the Temple of Bel , and the distinctive tower tombs.
The Palmyrenes were a mix of Amorites , Arameans , and Arabs. The city's social structure was tribal, and its inhabitants spoke Palmyrene a dialect of Aramaic ; Greek was used for commercial and diplomatic purposes.

The city's inhabitants worshiped local Semitic deities , Mesopotamian and Arab gods. The king was succeeded by regent Queen Zenobia , who rebelled against Rome and established the Palmyrene Empire. In , Roman emperor Aurelian destroyed the city, which was later restored by Diocletian at a reduced size.
The Palmyrenes converted to Christianity during the fourth century and to Islam in the centuries following the conquest by the Rashidun Caliphate , after which the Palmyrene and Greek languages were replaced by Arabic. Before AD , Palmyra enjoyed autonomy and was attached to the Roman province of Syria , having its political organization influenced by the Greek city-state model during the first two centuries AD.

Many surviving funerary busts reached Western museums during the 19th century. Like its art, Palmyra's architecture was influenced by the Greco-Roman style, while preserving local elements best seen in the Temple of Bel. West of the ancient walls, the Palmyrenes built a number of large-scale funerary monuments which now form the Valley of Tombs,  a 1-kilometre-long 0.
