Treasure (from Greek θησαυρός - thēsauros, meaning "treasure store", romanized as thesaurus) is a concentration of riches, often one which is considered lost or forgotten until being rediscovered. Some jurisdictions legally define what constitutes treasure, such as in the British Treasure Act 1996.

But being got it is a treasure sweet,
Which to defend is harder than to get:
And ought not be profaned on either part,
For though tis got by chance,tis kept by art.”
—John Donne (c. 15721631)
