  Satrap - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Satrap is derived from the Old Persian "khshathrapāvā" (protector of the province), based on khshathra- meaning protector and pāvā meaning realm or province.
Satrap was the name given to the governors of the provinces in ancient Median and Persian Achaemenid empires and in several of their heirs, as Sassanid and later hellenistic empires.
The satrap was the head of the administration of his province, and found himself surrounded by an all-but-royal court; he collected the taxes, controlled the local officials and the subject tribes and cities, and was the supreme judge of the province before whose "chair" (Nehemiah 3:7) every civil and criminal case could be brought.
