    The coin is Roman. The Emperor is not difficult to identify. But the reverse seems quite interesting and nearly new to me. It's a commemorative building ? Thanks for help.

    Is it a city gate and surrounding wall?

    Thanks. The lettering on obverse is very worn. I would guess Caracalla ?

    Perfect. I guess I'm reading Tyre on reverse (TYRO).

    The link above, leading to cng. example, shows a coin that reads Alexander in outer right field of obverse. Intriguing !
