ATTHARATES. Corrupt form of Tirshatha.

International Standard Bible Encyclopedia (1915)

a-thar’-a-tez: A title assigned to Nehemiah, probably by a later editor (Ne 8:9). The Septuagint omits the title; the Vulgate (Jerome’s Latin Bible, 390-405 A. D.) gives "Athersatha"; the King James Version reads "Nehemiah, which is the Tirshatha." Tirshatha is the Persian title for a local or provincial governor (Ne 8:9 = 1 Esdras 9:49). See Tirshatha.
