I have a worn specimen from the same dies, ex Agora E40, 2015, 161. Plus two others from the same obv. die, but with different rev. types: COS III Nude Mars advancing r., and COS III, Aequitas/Moneta standing l.

Thunderbolt on cuirass strap appears on some of Hadrian's bronze coins, as you recognized a year or two ago and showed us on Forvm. But that decoration has never been observed on his denarii or aurei, as far as I know. Here you have recognized a simpler decoration, a row of dots, which are also visible faintly on the best of my three specimens from the die.

You mean Hortator on curved prow not stern, right? That figure on bow looks more like a fighting Minerva than the director of the rowers. I had not really noticed this figure before!

Thank you, for the extra information, on this obverse die, i could not find one on Rome and on eastern mints
 yes a the stern, seen on "many" eastern minted galleys, it can only be a Hortator in my opinion


thank you Steve

Last week I got this denarius from a German auction (haven't photographed it yet, the pictures are the seller's), which I think fits in here.

Denarius, Hadrian
Obv. HADRIANUS - AUGUSTUS PP
Laureate bust right with draped left shoulder
Rev. FIDES - AUG
Fides standing right with corn-ears and fruit platter (?)
18 mm, 3.09 g, die axis 6 o'clock

The obverse does not share its die with any of the denarii in this thread, the short and fluttering wreath-ties are unusual; most of the coins in this thread have longer, vertically hanging ties.

The reverse legend is known for Eastern antoniniani of Claudius II only according to Cohen, but RIC lists a possible Rome mint prototype with the same reverse figure as 241A. However, the legend in RIC is FIDES PUBLICA, and HADRIANUS AUG COS III PP on the obverse.
