ἡγεμών hēgemṓn, hayg-em-ohn'; from G2233; a leader, i.e. chief person (or figuratively, place) of a province:—governor, prince, ruler.
STRONGS NT 2232: ἡγεμών
ἡγεμών, -όνος, , (ἡγέομαι), in classical Greek a word of very various signification: a leader of any kind, a guide, ruler, prefect, president, chief, general, commander, sovereign; in the N. T. specifically:
1. a 'legatus Caesaris,' an officer administering a province in the name and with the authority of the Roman emperor; the governor of a province: Matthew 10:18; Mark 13:9; Luke 21:12; 1 Peter 2:14.
2. a procurator (Vulg. praeses; Luth. Landpfleger), an officer who was attached to a proconsul or a propraetor and had charge of the imperial revenues; in causes relating to these revenues he administered justice, (called ἐπίτροπος, διοικητής, in secular authors). In the smaller provinces also, which were so to speak appendages of the greater, he discharged the functions of governor of the province; and such was the relation of the procurator of Judæa to the governor of Syria (cf. Krebs, Observations, p. 61ff; Fischer, De vitiis lexx. etc., p. 432ff; Winers RWB under the word Procuratoren; Sieffert in Herzog 2 under the word Landpfleger; Krenkel in Schenkel 4:7; [BB. DD. under the word Procurator]); so of Pilate, Felix, Festus: Matthew 27:2, 11, 14f, Matthew 27:21,23 [R G L Tr marginal reading], Matthew 27:27; Matthew 28:14; Luke 20:20; Acts 23:24, 26, 33; Acts 24:1, 10; Acts 26:30; Πιλᾶτος τῆς Ἰουδαίας ἡγεμών, Josephus Antiquities 18, 3, 1; (Tacitus, ann. 15, 44 Christus Tiberio imperitante per procuratorem Pontium Pilatum supplicio adfectus erat).
3. first, leading, chief: so of a principal town as the capital of the region, Matthew 2:6, where the meaning is, 'Thou art by no means least among the chief cities of Judah;' others less aptly (Bleek also [(where?); in his (posthumous) Synoptative Erklärung etc. 1:119 he repudiates this interpretation (ascribed by him to Hofmann, Weiss. u. Erfüll. 2:56)]), 'Thou shalt by no means be regarded as least among i. e. by the princes, the nobles, of the state.' The saying is taken from Micah 5:2 (1), where the Hebrew בְּאַלְפֵי (which the Sept. give correctly, ἐν χιλιάσι) seems to have been read בְּאַלֻּפֵי by the Evangelist [cf. Edersheim, Jesus the Messiah, i. 206].
