Marked as "Carnutes 3rd C BC"
The date is wrong (far too early) but the Carnutes ID seems reasonable. I'm wondering if anyone can give me a more detailed ID?

Diam 16.2-13.6mm
Wt 4.9 grams
Thickness 4.5mm
Bronze

Obverse: Head with ?Laurel wreath
Reverse: Horse or winged lion? (tail visible) [2 photos at different angles to show image clearer]

@ger, that is an interesting piece. Celtic coins are a bit out of my wheelhouse, but this has some passing resemblance to Delestrée #2471:

Maybe a starting point for further investigation?
