For other people named Arsames, see Arsames (disambiguation).

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.
