The one on the reverse looks like a young person.
It's 33 mm and 19.51 gr. Can you help?

Totally guessing and haven't done any research yet
RPC online has large Tarsus AEs of Elagabalus, one with Julia Paula, but the ones in RPC are all significantly lighter (mine is of a thick type). For Caracalla I checked ACSearch, and there are some Domnas of the right weight. I noticed that the average condition of these heavy bronzes (a.o. on VCoins) is something like VG, so mine is not too bad after all.
But I also have the sylloge catalog of Tahberer on my computer, Ancient Cilician Coins of the Collection of B. Tahberer (2014), a Canadian collector. It is in English and Turkish and counts about 1800 coins, with weight and diameter (Thank you, Mr Tahberer!) and many excellent photos.
Here are nrs. 1511 and 1512, of Julia Domna. On my coin you can see the crescent under Domna's bust and the π (Pi) to the right of Caracalla. Both coins are 3.5 gr. lighter, but they are a bit chipped.
I think you've got it. A search on ISEGRIM also shows the type catalogued in BMC, SNG Levante and SNG France. The weights of the examples cited in Levante and France are close to yours.
