I don't have high hopes for getting this little guy ID'd, but figured I'd include him anyway. It's so small the picture actually shows off more than you can see with the naked eye.

About the same size as the last 3, but two to three times the girth.

It could be another Greek coin,with perhaps a dolphin on one side.

The opposite side could be a shield--just guesses here.

Hmmm

I'd also guess that it is Greek.

Compare the reverse to this coin, which shows "the youth Hermias swimming right, arm draped over a dolphin". I see some similarities.
