Hello, I'm trying to identify some of my coins and any idea is very welcome. Thank you for your help!

I believe this is a Byzantine coin, I'm not sure if I got the photos correct, I can read the word ΝΙΚΗΦΟΡΟΥ, I spend a lot of time searching but no luck

I don't think it's Byzantine; I'd guess Greek from 3rd-1st century BC. Wildwinds suggests Pergamon, Mysia, but I can't match the obverse (...is that a counterstamp?)

I was thinking an overstrike on ancient greek coin, maybe on Athena's head because I see some tracks of a helmet to the left, is not very clear if is a counterstamp, I will check it out the Pergamon to see if I got an answer. Thank you for your idea!
