I can’t really help with identifying this coin, but I can, with complete certitude, confirm that this was minted in the ‘BC/AD time period.’
@philologus_1's specimen here.
It is Judaean. Third year of the war against Rome from about year 68/69ad. Second picture is upside down; it is a jar with a lid.
Hendin 1363. Year: 68/69 AD.
Edit: @tartanhill beat my post by a minute.
Well, to be really certain, you always need to add a "ca." at the beginning! Just in case you're wrong and it's some era other than those two.
So like this is correct?
Judea, First Jewish War Æ Prutah
Year 3 (68-69 A.D.)
Amphora with two handles and lid with paleo-Hebrew inscription Year Three around / Vine leaf on branch with paleo-Hebrew inscription The Freedom of Zion around.
Hendin 664; Meshorer 204.
