    Not Celtic. I think Jerry is on the right track. Roman Republic Bronze? Unless it's highly corroded AR? To my knowledge the She Wolf - Remus - Romulus symbology is exclusive to Roman civilization. And the bust looks Roman.

    That's a cool coin, TIF, but I don't see a horseman on Ripley's piece. I think it's the wolf, as she's typically portrayed with her head bowed.

    Long time no see Doucet, and I think you are the winner here. It does look like the coin you linked.
