This is a long-shot but the face reminds me quite a lot of some of the mugshots of the nymph Kyrene and there’s more than a hint of a silphium plant to the reverse.

I haven’t seen them in combination, though it’s a little outside “my area”.

Wildwinds (use thumbnail option) might help-

Kind of looks like Rhodes to me, though I'm not aware if they issued coinage that small.

There are a few small coins with Athena and rose.

attributed to Rhodes by the sellers, but without reference:

or this from Soloi-Pompeiopolis

but non of them is a perfect match, so I'm not convinced
