    I have looked all over the internet and though the Sear's Greek books and I have not found anything like this. It reminds me of the coinage of Elymais, but I am having trouble identifying it. Any information would be helpful. The obverse looks like a lamb or a donkey. The reverse seems to have a caduceus and something written in a Semitic script. Please do let me know if you can help me identify this coin.

    I most certainly could be wrong, but that looks like a bull with a crescent moon to me. Kinda like:

    That's a coin from the Vijayanagar empire from south India.
