It's definitely not Roman. I'm thinking Mid-East or South Asia.

It's a late rendition of the "bull and horseman jital" from India. The type originated in the 700s or 800s, and persisted until the early 1300s, albeit with the figures presented as geometric shapes to appease the Arabic requirement of "no graven images on coins"
