I can read ...  :Greek_Omicron: :Greek_Upsilon_2: :Greek_Eta: :Greek_Rho: :Greek_Omicron: ...
thus Maximus is best fit.

One of the most common reverses, with a scarce Emperor and even scarcer provincial city.  Any Mysia references?

Here is the end of obverse legend if any one would like to take a crack at it.

Not Maximus. :'(   

AVTKO VIBIO...  would be either Trebonianus or Volusian.  Any help much appreciated.
