Hello again Peter, I also have this Bronze Buddha head that looks quite old. There are numerous characters on the bottom and sides. Are these old ancient characters? Thank you very much again!

Can't read the mark. It uses a character variant that I am unable to read.

My view is that it is not that old. The patina of old items looks completely different; much darker, due to the composition of the metal used in earlier times.
