This is an extremely rare AV Stater from a Celto-Scythian people called the "Basternae" circa 150 BC. They lived in the Black Sea region, copied the gold Staters of Lysimachus of Thrace. Few known.

That thing must be worth a fortune? If that's a "stylized head of Athena" then modern art was better 2200 years ago I guess, because I don't see anything but some random lines and dots. Is that pure gold?
