Hi Guys-
I don't know if there is enough detail to ID this coin but here is a try. Bronze. 20mm and 8.15 grams. Also any ID on the counter mark? Thank you for your reply-

Just an initial proposal/possibility, without much of a search here. Based on the size, rectangular c/m (which looks to contain a bust right), Tyche (?) with rudder and cornucopia, and the ΕΩΝ visible at 1:00 on the reverse:

Wow! That was quick Bob L. I thought it was Greek- well looking at all the bumps and giggles looks like you might have hit it! Akko-Ptolemais or todays Acre Israel and then Roman Phoenicia.

During the rule of the emperor Claudius there was a building drive in Ptolemais and veterans of the legions settled here. The city was a center of Romanization in the region, but most of the population was made of local Phoenicians and Jews and as a consequence after the Hadrian times the descendants of the initial Roman colonists were no more speaking Latin and were fully assimilated in less than two centuries however the local society's customs were Roman.

Doing a quick check it looks like there are not a lot of these surviving so this one must be a bit rare.
