I need help with an ID on a Greek coin. 20mm and 5.4 grams. It might be from Carthage but am not sure. I think it is Head of Tanit left / horse standing right, looking back left- countermark under the horse. I could not find an exact match on Wildwinds. Thank you for your help.

WOOT! I think you got it. My coin is smaller and lighter but the reverse looks exactly like mine. Could be some inflation going on after the war with Rome. Smaller and lighter coins. The countermark could be saying that this coin is still OK. Thanks Palouche. We learn a lot from these small minted pieces of history.
