Note Weisser, Coinage and Identity, p. 139 suggests a personal connection with Quadratus. The argument is supported by a similar interpretation of the Dionysus type, but that also occurs under Domitian. The coin is so worn that, for all we know, it may also have included the term ΟΜΟΝΟΙΑ, as one might expect.
