Quick Reference

The fourth part of an archē (‘dominion’). In Roman times many Hellenized client kings in Syria and Palestine were styled ‘tetrarch’, but the number of tetrarchies in any political organization ceased to be necessarily four, denoting merely the realm of a subordinate dynast. See also diocletian.
