Has an approximate line of Jewish governors been identified during the period from Cyrus to Alexander? The only names I have are Sheshbazzar, Zerubbabel and Nehemiah. I am referring to governors - not to high priests. Are any other governors known?
Here are lists from several academic sources:
- Bar-Kochva's "Pseudo-Hecataeus on the Jews"
- Kuhurt's "The Persian Empire: A Corpus of Sources from the Achaemenid Period"
- Grabbe's "A History of the Jews and Judaism in the Second Temple Period "
It should be emphasized that there is significant uncertainty in the chronologies. Moreover, due to lack of literary and archaeological sources from the time, they are also incomplete.
