This coin came from the same box as the previous post, that @Bob_L identified as Turkish. It is possibly from the same region, but I have not found a match during many image searches. Not being able to read the inscriptions is a real drawback. I don't even know if the orientation is correct. The obverse (?) looks like a bull.

Hopefully someone will know what it is. It has the appearance and feel of silver. It is 15 mm in diameter, 2.52 mm thick, and weighs 3.3 gr.

Thanks for any advice.

For an overview of the bull-and-horseman type, see:

Your right pic (the horse and rider) needs to be rotated 45 degrees clockwise, Jim.

Sorry for the late reply, as I had problems logging-in. It turned out to be a corrupted cookie in the browser.

Thank you for the link Bob. The article was most helpful in identifying the coin. Once the horse and rider side was rotated it was much clearer. If I am not wrong, it is a Kabul Shahis, AR jital, Samanta Deva.

Thank you also for the link to the thread Paul. It is extremely informative, well illustrated, and the OP (@drnsreedhar) has done amazing work putting it together.
