Hi!
My friend bought this coin few days ago and showed me yesterday.
In my opinion it's fake but he is sure that this is an original late Roman coin. What do You think about this?

It looks way too thin to be an authentic Roman; this looks more mediaeval in fabric.

The "obverse" features Minerva, Roman goddess of wisdom, but I'm not aware of Minerva being portrayed like this on any genuine Roman coin.

I can't make out anything on the reverse, except an arm holding a bow over on the left side. If I had to guess, I'd say it's some kind of jeton.

I agree not a Roman coin, their is some type of inscription on the reverse which I can't make out, also I see what could be part of a mint mark of ?STA. I also think it's some type of jeton.
