It's probably a waffle :), because you may have been thinking of the coin shown here and that one doesn't fit.

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

It's an early Ottoman piece from Egypt: you are probably remembering Arminius' coin here http://www.worldofcoins.eu/forum/index.php/topic,26559.0.html
