Caesar's face, in his tongue. The lines on the circle line. The opposite of everything that surrounds us.

The answer is the seven-letter name of a country.

I think this is...

Austria

Caesar's face, in his tongue

Au, short for gold (Aurum in Latin) and also Aureus, a gold coin which Caesar has minted.

The lines on the circle line

St, short for the stations or stops on the Circle Line?

The opposite of everything that surrounds us

ria, which as WAF has wisely noted is air spelled backwards.

I'm not sure about this, but maybe

Liberia

because

"liber" is Latin (the language of the Caesars) for "book", which contains a lot of typeface.

and

"ER" is the initials of "Edgware Road", which is the station the Circle Line on the underground will take you to if you ride in either direction.

and

"ria" is "air" which surrounds us, backwards.

    $\begingroup$ Sorry but that's incorrect. Your solution would be libereria. $\endgroup$ – Daniel Cooper Nov 19 '18 at 12:06
  • $\begingroup$ @DanielCooper I was thinking the first two elements could overlap. . . Good puzzle. $\endgroup$ – WAF Nov 19 '18 at 12:17
  • $\begingroup$ I think you're right about the last part and used that (if that's OK). $\endgroup$ – Walt Nov 19 '18 at 13:06
