Hellenistic Sicily provides modern scholars with a considerable amount of epigraphic information on financial matters, both at a public (accounts of the city) and at a private (e.g. sale contracts) level. The paper will comment upon the available sources and then focus on the public, physically cityscaping – as opposed to the original documents possibly stored in the civic archives – materials. Thanks to the documents from Tauromenion it will be possible to observe in detail a specific project of publication of financial data, to consider how it was realized and to what extent it affected public spaces. In order to ascertain the meaning of this project and to speculate on its scope it will be necessary to compare it with other cases from the Greek World considering both its contents and its appearance. It will be shown that beyond several apparent similarities there are substantial differences that point to a certain peculiarity of the Sicilian documents.
