Interesting coin, but the drawing on the reverse is very difficult to interpret. The inside looks like a dart placed along a folded sling and with a sort of attachment to the sling near the tail, but it's all very uncertain. And the outer sourrounding thong I donīt know what represents.

It is tantalizingly like a dart and sling. There might be some mileage in this after all. Now that we know what the coin is we could try and find a clearer example.
