Both the head and the bull look very Greek, but the coin is not very talkative. I think I see an eta possibly followed by epsilon in the exergue on the reverse. Can you see other letters?

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

Pretty good! I just can't find eta or eta epsilon in the exergue on any of the Neapolitan coins in Wildwinds and the two letters don't fit with NEOΠOΛITΩN either. That doesn't mean it's not Neapolis (Campania), it just means that either Wildwinds doesn't have this variety yet or I overlooked it.

Face looks like Zeus or Apollo, reverse is defiantly bull with a man's head.  Rough coin but cool!  I'll try to look it up :-)
