Definitely a provincial coin as you can see the centration dimples.

Having trouble with the legends. Trajan or Gordian III?

Thanks, @Biancasdad. I checked both rulers but I cannot confidently find a match in Wildwinds. Some obverse letters appear to be ..AIANOC.. or ..D(delta)IANOC.. which would fit Trajan or Gordian, but the letters before don't look right.

The reverse has some letters which may be ..MHTPO..
which may be part of the city name.

I'll put this aside for now. It was part of a group of 26 I got and the only one I can't identify yet.

Yeah; what I see is A?AIANOC, which doesn't make any sense, even if we assume that any of the As are actually Λ and/or Δ.

My utterly unmotivated guess, based on some very faint letters circa 12h: OYAΛEPIANOC = Valerian.

@january1may, that is an interesting bit of detective work. Looking at the coin in-hand, I find it quite plausible that I can see..VAΛEPIANOC. As to the obverse, it looks like ...MHTPOP... the only problem being that it should look like ...MHTΡOΠ...
