  I know that. But why is "shalish" an "officer"? Any particular kind of 
officer? Does it have to do with chariotry in particuar? Is the word Hebrew, and 
if so, is it related to "shalosh", three? If not, is it Egyptian? Akkadian?
___________

It just might be related to "three."  The chariots sometimes carried 3 
persons.
