Roman Provincial Help Needed

Hi, guys. I need some help with an ID on this 28 mm, 11 gram bronze from a Roman Provincial mint. The coin is well worn so the inscription is only partial. I thought I could see Septimius Severus there but I don't think I have ever seen a beardless Septimius, unless the heavy wear has worn it smooth. The reverse is not much of a help either. Any ideas much appreciated. Thanks.

Thanks. That was just what I was looking for. But what does OU (Greek rendering of V) APIAS mean?
