Can someone please identify this coin? I would really appreciate it if you could tell me how old it is and what era it belongs to? (hist-2022/3478/image_8r5hT2xo2yfB.jpg">

It looks to be a version of a coin representing the Armenian king Tigranes II, with the Tyche of Antioch on the flip side. You can read about the history at the above wiki link.
