And the man which was come as a stranger unto Yeshua, let down the covering from
off his head; and behold, there sat before the Lord, Herod Philip, tetrarch of all
Batanea, Trachonitis, Auranitis, and Panias.
Summary: The region of Auranitis was part of the northeastern province of Judea
which came under the rule of Herod the Great in 37 BCE, then later inherited by his
son Herod Philip (Philip the Tetrarch) in 4 BCE as part of the Herodian Tetrarchy
(see: MAP). Other territories included under Philip’s rule were: Batanea, Trachonitis
and Panias (Y:20:46).
