    This question appears to be off-topic because it asks for sources. – Tyler Durden Oct 17 '14 at 21:07
  • You are a bad man because you asked for sources. Read the help. – Tyler Durden Oct 17 '14 at 21:07

    I'll try to look up Meritt's books tomorrow. Any particular city you are interested in? – Felix Goldberg Oct 18 '14 at 19:37

    I am sorry to report that I failed in my self-appointed task. I did find Meritt's book but it seems to be organized in a way that is too difficult for a layman such as me to navigate. There are hundreds of pages with tribute lists but they are organized alphabetically (in Greek, no English translations are given, it seems) and not chronologically. I also did not find a chronological index. So to compile from the tables there a list such as you require would take far far more time than I can spare, alas. – Felix Goldberg Oct 19 '14 at 12:29

I believe some of the lists - at least fragmentary ones from epigraphic sources - can be found in Fornara's volume in the "Translated Documents of Greece and Rome" series:

  • Got a copy of this book. Very promising title, and has a lot of info on tributes, but ATL fragments only for 454/3 and 425/4 B.C periods. – Brasidas Oct 18 '14 at 3:00
