Chapter Summary

The territory along the southern reach of the river Tisza was first attached to the Ottoman Empire in 1551 when Sokollu Mehmed, the beylerbeyi of Rumelia commanded successful operations in the area. The manuscript referred to above is unique inasmuch as it is the only known mukataa-register from the vilayet of Temesvár and it contains data from the early period of Ottoman rule in the region. In order to examine the totals of the two mukataa-units in a somewhat larger context, the more or less contemporaneous account-books or summary registers of some other places in the vicinity can be used. Revenues from articles of domestic animal origin are restricted to five months at Becskerek (cf. graph 17), of which two are practically negligible with their 35, 40, and 100 penz income, respectively.

Keywords: Becskerek; mukataa-units; Ottoman empire; vilayet of Temesvár
