Hello,
i have this old coin, I think it's Greece and I was hoping someone would be able to identify it.

Its non-magnetic. 3.3cm roughly (since it's not circle).

Edit: sorry I added the pictures through my phone and must have pressed the wrong one.

It’s a Roman coin (or possibly a copy of a Roman coin). We will need the obverse to identify it better (you posted the reverse twice).

EX S C stands for “ex Senatus consulto” = “by decree of the Senate”.
I free coins from their holders and good wines from their bottles.

can I see a seam on the side, or is it just the light?

So I want to make sure it's pretty unanimous is most likely a fake?

Ok, thank you. I'm going to be selling it and wanted to make sure it was or wasn't the real thing.
