    I’d love some help identifying this coin. The design with the horse in the center looks familiar and I know it has crossed my desk before but I can’t place it. I’m thinking Eastern European around the 13th to 15th century…how close am I?

    My gut feeling is Cilician Armenia, I'd start checking with that.

    I believe it’s this. If it’s smaller than 3 grams it is a Pogh.

    Does look like Cilician Armenia to me too. I have one from that region.
    The text helps narrow it down as Armenian has a distinct alphabet.
    It's pretty hard to read anything in some examples, though!
