Hello CC!

I have this Greek coin that I'm having a hard time ID'ing. Romans are much easier to me.. haha. Anyways, this coin is 20.5mm and appears to have a female bust on the obs. On the back it looks like a person facing left holding something with dots below his extended arm. Thanks for the help!

Too bad the reverse is so worn. Might be a quadrans from Corduba, Spain/Iberia, with Venus obverse and Eros reverse. Weight works - as does the fabric, curl of hair on the obverse - as well as the pellet below that curl, and the three pellets on the reverse. For comparison, below. Not feeling 100% confident it's a match - but it is a possibility.

@bob - That has to be it. I looked for a long time and had no luck. So I really appreciate your help on this.
