Tax collection seems to have been the primary "duty" of Philo's family in Alexandria (a.k.a., the family of Steward Ptolemy in Herod's kingdom).

Makes me wonder about the disciple and tax collector Matthew. This is something I want to take up with Tim whenever he returns. I'd like to know how he derived the genealogy of Josephus son of Matthias (Matthew).
