    I could imagine I see a headdress like the Traveling Gnome’s Sabina's. I'm not saying it IS Sabina, but that's what came to mind when I saw the pointy top to that silhouette.

    The bust just looks feminine to me, is all.

    Nice little enigma for three and a half bucks. Hey, ancient silver for under five bucks, who cares how slick it is, right? Shoot, I'll bet you've already gotten three and a half bucks' worth of fun out of it already. ;)

    i think Julius Ceasar is more likely than sabina,

    the angles of the headdress + face doesn't look like a match to Sabina + the face looks more like Ceasar

    You posted right-facing Sabinas. I imagine I see a left-facing portrait, with the nose to the left and the back of the head to the right.

    Can you post the reverse as well? Also, weight and diameter might help to pin it down a bit more (though it's very worn).

    I think it's Louis XIV of France, bust facing left.
