It's all about that moment when metal that hasn't seen the light of day for generations frees itself from the soil and presents itself to me.

I agree, Definitely coins. one has a nice picture of a horse on it  Grin

Posted on: November 21, 2012, 02:24:22 PM
Only thing i've seen for that coin with the horse is a 3rd century BC Greek coin  (16mm - Greece, Zeugitana Carthage 3rd Century B.C.) but in gold. set in a brooch

Also found this;-
16, Carthaginians in Sicily?, c. 4th-3rd century BCE?, cf. Sear 6444
 

Head of Tanit left, wearing necklaces and grain wreath | Horse standing right, palm tree behind.

Tanit was the Phoenician fertility goddess, and, along with the horse alone or with palm tree, was commonly featured on their coins. I know very little about Phoenician coinage, but this small bronze came along at the right time and price and serves as a nice foil to Roman coins. A chronologic review of Carthage and its coinage here.
