Hi, I am new to this forum. I am looking for help identifying a coin I bought in Cappadocia Turkey a few years ago.

The obverse has Nymph Larissa looking slightly right and the reverse as a horse and rider heading left.

Any help will be appreciated!

Welcome. Neat coin. Celtic imitation.

One of the nicest Celtic imitations I've seen.

Thanks for the quick response. Can you tell me more about these Celtic replicas? Is this coin of any value?

Here's a search for some general information:

Here's one with the sale price listed:

That coin is a silver or billon issue, though. I can't tell if yours is silver, billon, or bronze.

Many thanks guys for the help and welcoming message!

I have been looking over the net for info with very limited success. I was not looking into Celtic coins and did not know anything about the imitations :)

The first link you provided has 20x more info than my many hours of search brought me. I guess it shows that you guys know your stuff and certainly have great resources. Could you recommend sites I should privilege for my seraches. I am usually looking for origin but also value. Have many Greek and roman coins bought over the years, but also many US and Canadian coins.

You might want to start by seeing some of the recommendations in the "Books, Downloads, Websites" section at the top of the forum page.
