Ancient Bronze Ptolmy coins

The exact time it belongs to I am really not sure, but as I have brought it from Alexandria, where Ptolmeys (Alexander successors) had ruled from 330 till 47 BC, I think it may belong to Ptolmey, either the second (Fladilphius) or Third (Sauter). During this period the world civilization was named after Alexandria Civilization.
