He is entitled also for an allowance to cover half of the expense required for keeping a guard and a horse besides other fringe benefits, namely six tari from each herd of ten or more sheep, a cartload of hay from every farmer who ploughs his fields with two oxen, two tumoli2 of barley and a bale of hay from every owner of the militia horses, ..., six tari per month from every tavern outside the Castello, one fourth from all fiscal penalties imposed, and other benefits. These add up to circa 700 scudi per annum.
