    Pictures of Ancient Greek or Roman Coin

    The below pictures are of an ancient Greek / Roman Coin which was attached to a gold
    chain.

    Was not able to find chain; the coin was returned to owner the same day.
    Details are contained in earlier post: "Found large ancient Greek coin, returned to Owner same day.
    Any help identifying date of coin, and ruler would be appreciated. Sorry, the picture is not clearer - it is the only one that I have.

    The bust is on the front of the coin.
    The horse, I was told for pulling charriot is on the rear of the coin.
    I was told by a welder, who inspected the coin, that it is bronze.

    An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

    It's suppose to represent a Roman coin but whether it's authentic is another question. ROMA under the horse represents the city of Rome. The numerous feet that appear on the horse are actually the feet of four horses; called a quadriga when pulling a chariot.

    The head is that of Roma, the goddess, and your date of 134 BC would tie into Roman coins featuring the head of Roma and a quadriga on the reverse, usually ridden/driven by Jupiter or Venus.

    I'm unable to find your exact coin--and have some suspicion as to its authenticity--just my opinion.
