It was only when  I spotted the eye that I saw the portrait facing left. There may be a remnant of a letter against the neck at 5 o'clock. The lower picture should be turned 90 clockwise. It shows the front part of a charging bull. I found no readable letters.

When you rotate the second picture a little you can see the 'man headed bull' so i would guess it,s from Naples   Neapolis  regards Derek

Best fit would be BMC 147 (http://www.wildwinds.com/coins/greece/campania/neapolis/t.html). Weight matches.
