    I bought this coin a while ago and never really gave it much thought until this week. I can't seem to determine its attribution. The obverse looks like Tyche and the reverse looks like a horse, but I don't know. Anyone have any ideas? It was bought as an imitation, but I don;t know if that is true or not. There was no mention of what it imitated...

    Looking at the yellowish metal and the casting funnels at 6 o'clock and 12 o'clock, I'd think of a Celtic cast potin. No guarantees, though.

    Kinda looks like an Indian head potin from the Senones tribe.

    The size and weight are 1.81g and 12mm. It originated from Ceylon and thus might be a Roman Imitation, but I am not sure...Thanks for the responses!
