    I guess we're just using different word to describe the same thing. It for sure was a tributary, as was basically every other place Rome controlled. Rereading, i guess i just got loose with my words and terminology. A tributary is more accurate. Though i guess i was arguing from the perspective of the state/property tax thing you mentioned... A sort of de facto type thing.

    Yes, and in Roman times, that means taxes. And much of that money went to the imperial purse. Meaning, the Emperor's purse. The Emperor always sought to be the richest and most influential person in the empire. Otherwise deposing his would be a very real possibility. Check out the Michael Duncan podcasts on ancient Rome. He highlights this very in depth. Its very interesting.

    I dont think you understand how provinces worked during Roman times. Some were administered by senators and some, like Egypt, were only allowed to be administered by the imperial court. Your boy Tacitus was also aware and wrote about this. As there was a very real threat that if a senator or some other powerful noble ruled Egypt, that they could harm Rome by cutting off one of its most vital grain supplier (not to mention raise armies from its vast population at the time). Therfore, the imperial court administered it directly.
