Translation

Ἰουστινιανῷ Μαβριανοῦ.

Justinian (son of?) Mavrianos.

Commentary

The obverse Ἰουστινιανῷ is in the dative, indicating that the reverse contains the patronymic. Additionally, though Μαβριανοῦ is the likely solution to the reverse monogram, Ἀβραμίου (Abramios) is also possible, as is Μάβρου (Mavros).
