Hadrian - large semis ?
HADRIANVS AVGVSTVS, draped and laureate bust right
COS III / S C, cithar

Handsome coin. The cithar (ancestor of the Spanish guitar or the Indian sitar) is the instrument played by Apollo. I always wondered what kind of music was played with it. Did it sound more like Spanish, Greek, Arabic, Indian music ?
