Obv:- Laureate head of Zeus right
Rev:- ΦIΛIΠ - ΠOY, naked youth on horse pacing right, holding long palm-branch, below horse crescent

Modern style, most likely Bulgarian in manufacture. The obverse fields tend to be concave. Of the published group they all seem to be by the same hand though their mints are distributed across the empire.
