Belgica Treasury Accounts

Prepared by Glitius Decianus

Valerius Asiaticus, the Governor of Belgica, has insisted that I keep a proper set of accounts for out Treasury that it may be audited by the Letters to the Roman Senate or Imperial Officials if required. I do not see why this need be done and I think that he did not trust me enough to make sure that there are funds sufficient to pay his legions. History has shown that I paid the German Legions for a year after Rome had stopped sending us money. It was not my fault that they then marched on Rome and sacked it.

For those of you wondering how the treasury managed to run with a deficit practically all the time then read the letters to the Letters to the Roman Senate asking for more cash. I also wrote letters of credit on the Imperial and Republic Treasury as appropriate for the time. I somehow doubt that these will be honoured gived subsequent events…
