This was in a mixed lot I got some time ago, most were  from India, this has what appears to be a Horse & Rider? but could be from Asia also

Looks like coins from Vima Takto (ca. 80-100 AD) of the Kushans, but in reverse?  I don't have my book in front me at the moment...


A gallery of my coins can been seen at FORVM Ancient Coins

Could well be although the Horses head is low down and it's legs look folded somehow  ???

Seems to be this one, but the attribution is the same as AIC 1178 which has Zeus facing right like my coins...

That's more like mine for sure, the horses head much lower down,  my example is barely collectable but nevertheless it has an i.d.!
