    The obverse of this silver coin reveals the bust of a sheep heading left. Reverse has 4 incused squares. It weighs 14 g. Can't identify it.

    The ewe is the female of a sheep, but to Me.. Maybe same to ewe.

    I could find some coins with rams from Kebren and Kasolaba, also Neandria, but not with forepart of the ram(I'm not saying they don't exist). The only similar ones I could find - forepart of ram + quadripartite incuse square - are these from Kyzicus but
    1. they also have the tunny fish behind the forepart (not sure if what I see behind the ram on this coin is a tunny fish)
    2. they are electrum not silver and weight is 15-16 g

    You need to clarify the size and weight of your coin, I think on the initial post you mentioned 14 g, then 1.4 and the last pic shows 14 g....

    If the last pic shows 14 g. then the weight is 14 g. I'll edit my answers for the second time. Also I shall post every thing after I buy this coin tomorrow. Inshallah
