Hi I've been metal detecting by an old ruin and I've found a coin or a pendant Don't have a clue what it is. Just wondered if somebody could help me find out what it is. Greek? Roman?  Pictures are too large to upload into here and can't find any other pictures online. if anyone is willing to help me please leave your email and I will send pictures through there as I can't upload them to here. Thanks for your help.

I can't say I know for sure what this is, but it looks religious - possibly a baptismal token or keepsake. The Sigma letters hint at Greek, but the rest of the letters look more traditional/Roman alphabet. 

Metal looks to be the cheap pewter-like metal used during the 19th and 20th century for low-value medallions and tourist pieces. Just thoughts.
