Arsames (Satrap of Egypt)

Background

Arsames was a satrap of Egypt during the late fifth century BC. He issued a document written in Aramaic on behalf of his estate manager, Nehtihor, in which he mentions a few cities in Assyria, showing that the region was economically active during the Achaemenid period.[1] Otherwise, little is known of Arsames, the satrap of Egypt.References[edit]Jump up ^ Curtis, John (November 2003).
