Maybe the copper core of an ancient plated denarius?

Or maybe not a Roman but a Greek? But I didn't find anything matching  Sad.

Can you read some of the letters below the horses?

I would suspect a fourree more so than a limes. Generally limes are something I associate with the middle Empire more so than the Republic. Fourrees are certainly present throughout the Republican period. I’m not sure that an intentionally bronze coin of this type and size would have served much of a purpose during the later part of the Republic. I don’t think it would have convinced anyone of anything. A plated fourree however, would have.
