Mazaces, also Mazakes (Aramaic: MZDK), was the last Achaemenid satrap of ancient Egypt during the late reign of Darius III of the 31st Dynasty of Egypt. Mazaces succeeded Sabaces after the latter's death at the battle of Issus (333 BCE). His office lasted less than a year, until Alexander the Great invaded Egypt in late 332 BCE.
