Seizure of the Temple Tax 

“The Primates of the Jews, who are nominated in the Synhedriis [provincial authorities] of either of the provinces of Palestine or stay in other provinces, shall be forced to pay all that they had received as tax since the cessation of the patriarchs. In the future, however, an annual payment shall be demanded fom all synagogues, on the Primates’ responsibility and under the supervision of the Palatins [treasury officials], in the same way that the patriarchs used in the past to demand under the name of Crown Gold; examine in a skillful investigation its amount; and what was used to be transmitted from the Western regions to the patriarchs (e.g. Jewish) should be entered into our Largesses [treasuries].”
