    Help identify coin or medallion

    Hello all!

    we have a coin or medallion of some sort found by my mother via metal detector. Anyone have any ideas on the symbol or letters on it. Some of the symbols are similar to Ancient Greek however I'm not sure if that's the case!

    Letters may be Greek or Latin not the symbol

    Very similar to a "widows mite", also known as a Lepton. I have seen the symbol described as an anchor and also alternatively a blooming lotus. The widows mites were minted by Alexander Jannaeus, King Of Judea, 103-76 BC. What you have looks a little off to me. Maybe it's a modern replica.
