Each nome was ruled by a nomarch (Ancient Egyptian: heri-tep a’a).[2] The number of nomes changed through the various periods of the history of ancient Egypt.

Through French nome, the word comes from Ancient Greek νομός, nomós, meaning “district”; the Ancient Egyptian term was sepat or spAt.[3]

Today’s use of the Ancient Greek rather than the Ancient Egyptian term came about during the Ptolemaic period, when the use of Greek was widespread in Egypt. The availability of Greek records on Egypt influenced the adoption of Greek terms by later historians.

The division of ancient Egypt into nomes can be traced back to prehistoric Egypt (before 3100 BC). These nomes originally existed as autonomous city-states[citation needed], but later began to unify. According to ancient tradition, the ruler Menes completed the final unification.[4]
