Coins usually have two sides ;), weight and size would be interesting too.

The legend reads: ΑΘΗΝΑ, so not Roman.

Diameter is around 15-16 mm and weight it is around 4 grams.

The reverse looks quite strange, is there any depiction at all? Perhaps it is some sort of modern souvenir?

Looks like glue.


Who knows, maybe there are others for Zeus, Apollo, Aphrodite.... possibly glued on a cardboard  ("The big collection of greek gods" or something like that), or jewellery......


The name "Athena" on a coin is in any case very unusual, with only a few examples, e.g. from Cyzicus. (but that one is completely different)

I really do not see the traces you see--but of course I am looking at a flat photograph.  If you want to find out what is really on the reverse, I think you need to clean it.

This is not my coin, yes, Lubomir H Has to polish it , I only suggested whad might be on the reverse , because this is how I associate some details that I noticed , and they arrange the bust in such a rim .
