Picked this coin up at antique/coin store thinking it was my first Ancient Greek coin however I think it might be from Ancient India
Any help is appreciated

99% sure it's not Indian; there's only a handful of silver coins that small that show a portrait, and it's not Indo-Greek or Yashaaditya.

I would maybe check in central Asia?

What's the weight?

The writing looks Aramaic (center line on reverse)or older Hebrew, but this is not a Maccabees era coin I recognize...but some time and area nearby perhaps?

Clearer pictures would help without the cent in the background.
