Your coin is a typical confusing Byzantine overstrike. Both pictures show a reverse, one of the overtype and one of the undertype. Apart from vague hints of consular robes, the obverse of the overtype simply isn't there because of a poor strike.

The left hand picture (large  M2)  is the reverse of a follis of Tiberius II Constantine or Maurice Tiberius. Since I believe all the year 8 folles of Tiberius Constantine are marked   G2 Greek_Iota Greek_Iota and not  U Greek_Iota Greek_Iota Greek_Iota , I think it has to be SBCV  832 of Maurice, mint of Antioch, of course.

There's not enough surviving detail in the right-hand picture (large  Greek_Mu) to be sure. I think I can just about make out an N in exergue, which would fit with a CON mintmark. And maybe the regnal year is III. The officina is B. My best guess would be Justin II  SBCV 360. I suppose Maurice SBCV 493 or 494 might also be possible as candidates.

Thank you so much dear friend

Iíve seen some very similar Parthian issues, but none of the right facing bust. The obverse is that, the reverse shows a bird, presumably an eagle, right, with wings outstretched. Itís a small (12mm) coin. The fabric reminds me of Parthian and Elymais coins, but Iím not sure beyond that.
