The history of Achaemenid Egypt is divided into two eras.

The initial period of Achaemenid Persian occupation when Egypt (Old Persian: Mudrāya) became a satrapy, known today as the Twenty-seventh Dynasty of Egypt, was followed by an interval of independence. A second period of occupation, again under the Achaemenids, is known as the Thirty-first Dynasty of Egypt.
