Another [Greek?] Bronze
 
If anyone can help me with this coin it would be great! Looks like either Greek or Jewish. Anything you can think of will help!

Nathan,

I think you are correct in your guessing Judaean. I can't make out enough of the letters within the wreath to begin to try an ID. How big is the coin. By the number of lines of legend that I think I see, I might guess that it is a rarer coin.

It is 15mm wide, and as thick as a Greek bronze. I will try and figure the legend out. Would it be in Hebrew or Aramaic? If it is Hebrew it looks like a little older version. What do you think is on the front?
Thanks for the help!

It is in Hebrew. It looks like 5 lines of letters. How do I enter Hebrew letters into the coin adding thing? I can make out some letters and will keep working on it.
Thanks!

Here is a drawing of what I am seeing.
It looks like there are 5 lines with around 5 letters in each line, and 1 line on the bottom with 2 letters. There is an interesting wreath design around the letters too. I may be wrong on some of the letters. Hope this helps.
Thanks!

It is a Prutoh of John Hyrcanus II.

I have to agree--the coin looks very much like a modern reproduction. It is of course impossible to be certain from a photo.
