I stumbled upon this coin on eBay looking for some cheap Romans, listed as an unknown Greek bronze, the sharp nose & the hair bun screamed Cleopatra! the damage on the reverse made it hard to decipher, yet I made out a face (of Mark Antony?), but you can read ΒΑCIΛΙC...
These are the only references I could get:

The coin in the post is 3.6g, ~20mm, however, this coin has the bust wearing some sort of pearly head-gear tho!
