It is meant to be an Indo-Greek tetradrachm of Menander, but I'm afraid to me it looks cast.

Thank you manzikert . If not cast should it be punchmarked? I am totally ignorant about this subject. Please guide

Actually I looked carefully at the edge and it looks smooth. no casting impression on the edge.

Agree with Alan, unfortunately this is a clear modern fake.
