I don't have an exact match  :-\, but a good guess  :).

There is a coin type from Keraia (also called Keraitai) in Pisidia, described in Friedrich Imhoof-Blumer, "Kleinasiatische Münzen", Vienna 1901, on page 375 as number 4:

and depicted on plate XIII as number 14:
https://archive.org/details/kleinasiatischem02imho/page/n291/mode/2up

It shows a shield on the obverse and a club on the reverse with the legend K-E.

The coin here seems stylistically to be a bit later, but the iconography is the same and the legend KE-PA would fit.

So I believe that the coin here is from Keraia in Pisidia  :).

Regards

Altamura
