    What is the diameter and weight? Where did the coin come from? If it came from a bulk lot or pick box, what other coins were with it? At a glance, I suspect an Ottoman "ornamental" type but there are other possibilities.

    I bought it in a lot of 5 unidentified ancient coins. 3 were Roman coins Gallenius, Constans, Galerius, 1 Silician Armenia coin, and this one. I don't have a caliper or scale to weigh the coin.

    The size is right for an Ottoman manghir. They were local issues with a great many varieties. I looked through the relevant listings at and through Valentine's Modern Cooper Coins of the Muhammedan States but didn't find a convincing match. That said, the three Romans and Cilician Armenia that you mention are all coins which turn up in modern Turkey.
