Funny, when I first found it I thought it was a corroded penny and I was just going to put it in the trash can at the park, but I removed some of the dirt and I could make out a bit of the horse, so I decided to take it home and clean it off. Low and behold, I have an amazing find. Thank you all for your post. Does anyone know if it still has value in its current condition?

My friend "MORCILLOM" has sold one today for about 5 dollars...
It has about 2200 years of history inside, was used as small change and to pay the purchases of Hannibalīs troops...
And you has found it in a country far, far away from the mediterranean sea...
...if I were you, I would kept the coin in my collection forever.

Never throw away anything unless it's obvious trash until you clean it up and get it home.

Even corroded zinc cents can be rolled up and dropped off at the bank you hate the most >:)

Any identifiable ancient coin "has value", even if it's only a few dollars, which is probably about what I'd expect to pay for a piece like this; $10 max.
