I found this in a mixed lot of Indian coins and would guess this is maybe Roman?   6.85g

Looks very similar to this, Ancient Carthage. Zeugitana, c. 241-210 BC. Large bronze drachm. Head of Tanit left / Horse standing right, head turned back,

Rotated head

The Horse certainly fits the description, I think the coin need a bit of an attempt to remove some of the deposits to make it clearer

There is a bit of tree visible, I'll try & remove some of the gunk although it looks like the really hard type of encrusting and certainly won't look like this one  :o
