The Persepolis fortification texts in the Elamite language deal with administrative transfers of food commodities in the years 509-494 B.C., that is, in the thirteenth through the twenty-eighth year of Darius I. They apply to a rather large area which extended south at least to Niriz and north well into Elam, though it did not normally include Susa. The texts may be divided into two main groups: those which are concerned with large operations (movement of commodities from place to place, assignments for broad general purposes, and so on) and those which detail apportionments to the ultimate consumer.
