Where the coins that constitute the main subject of this study were found is not known. These are the coins that were found through criminal investigations. Some of these were caught while the illegal excavation was being carried out, and some others, as the ones in this study, were found on the criminals. it is hard to find the original place of the find for the pieces that were caught in flagrante delicto and it is hard to say anything on their place find as the criminals mostly provide false statements.
