Abstract: Edition of a Greek record of taxes from the Arsinoite nome, dated 235/234 BC. Payments are made in cash, no doubt at the bank in Krokodilon polis, where this register was drawn up. They run over ten years and include salt tax, pasturage tax, dyke tax and guard taxes. Civilian and military payments(from cleruchs and mercenaries) are listed separately. On many taxes a small agio is charged, which is interesting for monetary history.
