I would say modern fantasy: you do get the (rather beautiful) incuse/relief things from Southern Italy, but I've never heard of a Greek coin which is incuse both sides. It wouldn't be much use as a seal either, without a handle of any kind. I think the engraving is rather poor for an ancient item too.
