It is Antoninus Pius with Demeter standing right in biga drawn by two winged serpents on the reverse. I can't read enough of the reverse legend to give any mint details but a similar coin was issued by an Ionian league during Antoninus' reign. Here is a link to the similar coin: http://www.acsearch.info/record.html?id=1169

Can you get a picture of the edge (side) of the coin and post it here? One way to spot a fake is that there will be a seam around the edge. I don't see any "smoking gun" that says forgery on your coin but I do have some areas of concern. The two biggest issues are the "bubbly" texture of the coin and the fact that it looks so much like the fake you found. I would never be able to say for certain but I will ask some people that are more knowledgeable than me and see what they say.

Regards,

Matt

I am afraid the coin seems to be a modern cast of an ancient coin.
