Similarly, Russia`s medieval Mongolian leaders were waiting for tributes from Russian states, which continued to govern themselves. Athens has received tributes from other cities in the Delian League. The kingdoms of Assyria, Babylon, Carthage and Rome demanded subject tribes and kings. Ancient China has received tributes from various countries such as Japan, Korea, Vietnam, Cambodia, Borneo, Indonesia, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Myanmar and Central Asia (listed here).   The Aztec Empire is another example. The Roman Republic claimed a tribute in the form of payments corresponding to proportional property taxes to wage war. Instead, diamond development company Stellar Diamonds and Octea Mining intend to enter into a mining agreement that would allow Stellar Diamonds to promote the Tonguma Licensing Area in eastern Sierra Leone, along with Stellar`s Tongo project and process, and to sell all diamonds extracted from these concessions while paying a portion of the proceeds from the sale to Octea Mining. In ancient China, the tribute system offered an administrative means of controlling their interests, as well as exclusive trade priorities for those who paid tribute to foreign regions.

However, Japan stopped paying tribute to China and left the external system during the Heian period, without damaging economic ties. Although Japan finally returned to the system under the government of Ashikaga Yoshimitsu during the Muromachi period, it has not yet begun to pay tribute.   While the completion of the Tribute Agreement is not considered a reverse acquisition in accordance with AIM rules, stellar Diamonds trading in AIM is currently suspended until a fundraiser is concluded. “The directors believe that the cost-effectiveness of the proposed tribute agreement is very attractive to Stellar. Subject to the terms of the tribute agreement that remains in effect for the life of the mine, Stellar estimates its after-tax operation resulting from the Tongo Tonguma mine at approximately $104 million. In addition, there remains considerable potential beyond the 4.5 million carats of resources (tongo and tonguma) thanks to the provision of resources and the future plan of additional high quality kimberlite mines on both properties. China has often received tributes from states under the influence of Confucian civilization and has given them Chinese products and recognition of their authority and sovereignty in return. Throughout ancient history, there have been several states of homage to the empires created by China, including neighboring countries such as Japan, Korea, Vietnam, Cambodia, Borneo, Indonesia and Central Asia.
