Persepolis Fortification archive texts dated from 509 to 493 B.C of Darius I (13–28). They document the intake, production, storage and redistribution of locally produced food commodities; recipients included gods, royals, nobles, officers and troops, officials and craftsmen, travellers, labourers and animals. The Fortification Archive is the prime source for the local administration of the Achaemenid heartland (Fars and Part of Khuzestan) and bear witness to a highly complex institutional administration. These Tiny and mundane texts by their individual and official content offer precious glimpses into social, economic and administration of imperial universe. Hallock based on their content classified texts to 32 categories. In this paper we focused on Q texts (travel rations), 719 texts and moreover we used texts in other categories that are somehow related to our subject. Our research indicates how the administrative procedure is in the travel texts, supplier and their official ranking, how the supplier and seals are related to each other, whether texts have seals or not, and how it is related to category of tablets, also geographical area, office and official ranking of each supplier and seals are indicated. However, we cannot reach a certain recognition of official situation of suppliers and seals in some cases.
