From this work, it emerges that the Aden port-duties in 1411–12 amounted to as much as 1,470,000 dinars, and that they were the major source of revenue for the Rasulid Sultans resident at Ta‘izz (Serjeant 1988). It is natural enough then that from the early thirteenth century, the Rasulid Sultans should have taken great interest in developing the port, building a reputation of such dimensions that in 1374–5, the qazi of Calicut wrote to them, requesting that the Muslims of this Malabar port be permitted to read the khutba in the name of the Rasulids.

The remaining sum is sent to the treasury in the capital. ¨ (Ozbaran 1986: 42) Two remarks are in order here. First, we note that these provinces are for the most part areas captured by the Ottomans in the sixteenth century. Secondly, it is worth remarking that almost all of these are provinces where trade had a more important role to play than in the Ottoman heartland of Anatolia and Rumelia. The sixteenth century is also a period when the Ottoman state’s direct interest in trade reaches its height.
