The style tells me this has to be Cimmerian Bosphorus.

ChrisHagen, many thanks for your help.
Could be from Rheskuporis IV 239-276  billon stater SGI 549(?)?; I am not able to read the date.

I read BASILE[WS] RESKHPORI, so the ruler fits. I read the date as Epsilon-Xi-?, or x65. Not sure how the Bosporan era corresponds to AD years.
