Vestiarion

   The term can refer to any treasury administered by a vestiarios (treasurer). It can also refer to the state treasury, which served as an arsenal for the army (q.v.) and fleet, and was the repository for precious objects. It should not be confused with the sakellion (q.v.), which was the state treasury for coined money.
