While foundationdeposits over very diverse periods and regions are well-known to both archaeologists and numismatists nevertheless these are often not noted in scientific literature or archaeological reports. Indeed, only the most obvious and best-documented cases are generally considered as foundation deposits. Consequently, studies on this subject have almost exclusively tended to address exceptional or obvious deposits which are easily demonstrated by the presence of several currencies together, or by the specific identification of a monument or by the repeated action And yet, less obvious contexts may also be expected to yield a foundation deposit.
