    Hi everybody,
    Any idea where this coin comes from?
    I can't find any references based on the head on the obverse.
    Any info would be greatly appreciated!
    Cheers! :)

    I'm pretty sure it's this:

    Sicily, Syracuse under Roman rule (212-150 BC)
    Obv: Head of Serapis right, hair bound in taenia
    Rev: (ΣYΡAKO)CIΩN; Isis standing half-left wearing head dress and holding sistrum and scepter
