An official, a governor of a province of Roman Greece, whose title was equivalent to, or represented that of the Roman "praefectus." The area of his administration was called an eparchy. The term survives as one of the administrative units of modern Greece, the country being divided into nomarchies, subdivided into eparchies, again subdivided into demarchies. "Eparch" and "eparchy" are also used in the Russian Orthodox Church for a bishop and his diocese respectively.
