Arsames


Arsames
Persian satrap c.425-400 BC.
    When Egypt was under Persian domination during the last quarter of the fifth century BC, Arsames was the satrap left in charge of the country. His letters to his subordinates, written in Aramaic on leather and probably sent out from Memphis, have provided information about this sparsely recorded period of history.
