Hello! I really need a professional opinion. Here's a coin, found in Crimea. It seems to be of good quality, from a material that looks like gold. But on the web I didn't find any images, like the ones on this one. It says Zeus on one side and Apollo on the other, but I'm not sure about the language. In the word ZEYC the Y letter is a bit ruined. Please, help
ello everybody, I finally got back to looking at some of my collection today and found this little coin. At first I thought it to be a tree of some sorts and then after doing some research realized it was an anchor and I therefor think it's Greek and of Apollonia Pontika. I just couldn't seem to find one which the anchor has dots or eyes underneath it as mine does. I am also considering it could be a fake, however seems unlikely. I also hope you can discern how small it is based on the staples in the pictures. I appreciate any information I can get, Thanks so much -Jake.
