Thanks @Victor !!! I just could not find a coin in wildwinds that had the "ET" or the "H". Thanks again for taking your time to solve this mystery for me.

Greek ET is an abbreviation for ETOYΣ ("of the year"). The Greeks used letters for numerals. "C" (a late form of Σ) equals 200 and Η equals 8, so "of the year 208". I'm not sure what era is represented but it seems to begin c. 3/4 BC.
