I spotted this today incongruously amidst a shop's as of yet unsorted material, the only ancient in there. The Pegasus motif made me think right away in terms of an issue of Corinth, and in fact that's what it turns out to appear to be, cataloged I believe as BMC 448.

Diminutive in size at 11.5 to 12 mm in diameter, with the weight coming in at 1.44 grams. I don't see that a denomination is specified.

I first always liked this one with the decorated trident especially as what a beautiful coin to design! Second, with all the eBay sales coins being in every family and being passed along from houses of the drawer near the fathers bed with other odds and ends, it is now amazing you find over 2000 year old coins just about everywhere like you did in this lot. Used to be there had to be a connection, the man was in the service or went to the country etc. Now they can be just about anywhere in society.
