OK - begging the indulgence of the moderators here.  Attached here are images of a large bronze medallion that appears to be modeled after imagery reminiscent of Parthian or similar artistic themes on ancient coins.  This is definitely not ancient but artistically derivative of the ancient imagery with a chariot carrying 'the king' and drawn by two decorated horses on one side and crowned, curly-bearded 'king' with stylized feathered helmet on the other.  Symbols might be readable by someone here or the medallion's origin might be known or recognized.  It's 55mm diameter and weighs nearly about 90 grams, bronze.  Nice object but a bit of a mystery.

Pics are shot with cell phone but clearly show all the design elements and 'symbols'.

Thanks in advance for any help identifying who might have struck this medallion
