Hi, I'm new here.. I think I stumbbled on a rare metal old coin.. I found it in Jordan, almost 3.5 meters underground... I could swear it is a king or knight ridding a dinasour. Please help me to identify which era or civilization it belongs to.. Attached two sides of coin.
thanks in advance.

Hi Maz.  I think it is an early Islamic coin imitating a Byzantine follis (M=40 Nummia), possibly similar to this coin, from one of the galleries here at ForumAncientCoins.  You can search for "Arab Byzantine Imitation" for more examples.  Not rare, but still nice to find!
