Dear cf,

looks like it;s Hermes standing http://rpc.ashmus.ox.ac.uk/coins/3/1270/ on the reverse, but the usual items are missing caduceus and purse

Reference.
Metcalf -. RIC -. RPC III -.

Obv. HADRIANVS AVGVSTVS P P
Bare head of Hadrian to right.

Rev. COS III
Youthful male figure (Apollo?) standing front, head to left, holding long scepter.

10.75 gr
29 mm
6h

Note.
Apparently unpublished and unique

reverse like this one
Hero Kyzicos naked but a chlamys on l. shoulder, standing l., resting on sceptre with his r. hand, l. hand on his hip
