Found this online and thought it was pretty interesting. Its from the Ptolemaic dynasty, but still rather interesting. I don't know much about the Ptolemaic rulers or the tax system they used, but they were charged in something called "talents" and had to pay a surcharge for not paying in silver--possibly. Pretty interesting, albeit short, article.
