Very interesting. I have the same tessera. The ANT - side sems to be identical. Mine is definitely from the Trau collection. It is pictured in Numismatische Zeitschrift 25 (Wien 1893), J. Scholz, Roemische Bleitesserae. There the tesserae of the Trau collection are catalogued. The building is called a rogus. But now I am not sure what it really is.
