The role of royal fiscal authorities in the taxation of sale is examined in Hellenistic Greece and the Near East. By and large, the royal role seems to have been markedly minimal, as the kings ceded to cities sovereignty over sales tax. However, a royal role can be discerned on the borders between the many fiscal zones within the kingdom: taxes were gleaned from the movement of goods destined for sale, on mobility in the service of sale.
