    Ancient Coin Greek? Silver Electrum?

    I purchased this coin pendant and am wondering if anyone can correctly identify this please. It is very small, approximately 13.3-13.59mm in diameter and weighs ~2.6 grams with the bail. My uneducated guess is Greek, 150BC to 50BC? There is a letter H to at the bottom left of lyre. I have no idea of the value. The bail is attached with lead solder and could probably be removed with moderate ease.

    My apologies for it being inappropriately positioned; not sure why it uploaded this way.

    Thank you in advance for any information.

    Thank you!

    Thank you very much. If you ever require input on jewelry or small antiques, feel free to ask. I am jack of all, master of none...

    I will figure out how to set notifications from this site in case you ever want my opinion.
