Greek coin....need help identifying?

I found this coin and have no clue what it is. The front of the coin has what looks like a greek man's face and the words "IMPCAESMAVREV ALEXANDERAVC" and on the back it has a warrior with what looks like spaniard with a spear and a shield and has the words "MARS-VVTOS". Any help would be great.

below are links to pictures of the coin (sorry, they were taken with a cell phone are hard to make out)

Coin might be Roman from the period when Alexander the Great ruled but I'm not sure.

The coin is Roman from the imperial period. IMPCAES stands for Imperator Caesar, but I can't make sense of what comes after that. The name Alexander is fairly obvious, but that may refer to where the coin was minted (Alexandria). The God on the back is Mars, god of war. I'm not sure about WTOS, but it may be ultor, making this Mars Ultor, aka Mars the Avenger. Augustus dedicated a temple to Mars Ultor in Rome, but this is obviously not an Augustan coin.
