Where did this ancient coin come from?

I will not qualify the authenticity of the piece, it doesn't look right to me.

 

But a note on the lettering, in the eastern part of the Roman Empire, notably Thrace, they used a different alphabet that is actually a lot closer to the Greek alphabet instead of the Roman one. This piece purports from that part of the Empire, and without whole specifics I would opin that it is Thracian(now Bulgaria, E. Greece etc.)

Thank you. If it is a copy it is still 100 years old It was my great grandfather's.
