Any idea on this AE4 eagle rev?

    Hello, coin is 1 gr, diameter is 10.5 mm. I believe an eagle is apparent, and a head with a diadem/headband strings behind it show on obverse. At first I thought perhaps Ptolemaic Egypt, but i saw some Herod coins with similar bird on coin, but no head on obverse. Any idea on this one? thanks in advance F3C7767E-8FD7-483A-8B40-5B0A229E9284.jpeg 81A19D89-902C-4A0F-9336-89E690C43F64.jpeg

    Looks like Ptolemaic eagle style but hard to say in that condition.

    yeah, agreed. I’ll have to check that area’s small coinage. I think they had some small ones with zeus or a Ptolemy bverse

    If it's Ptolemaic, it's one of the later issues, since it doesn't have a central dimple. You might check this site:

    Perhaps jump to this section, which is near the bottom of the (VERY long) page:
