Some additional information about this coin that would be helpful:
- weight in grams
- approx. diameter
- source of coin (name of dealer or party from whom purchased -- if not a private individual)

Here's a similar coin that sold in an auction about a year ago for about $60 U.S., including buyer's fee:
It's my personal opinion that the coin you posted appears to be genuine.
This is not a rare coin and I would expect that the price for the EBay coin would be similar to the one that I posted above.
Weight and size are within normal range for this type of coin.
If you decide to bid in this EBay auction, you might want to compare prices for similar coins by searching on VCoins.com or CNG's e-auctions (you'll find about five of them). Use the search terms "hadrian denarius sal avg" to find them. Be sure to note the condition of the coins relative to the EBay auction coin and adjust your maximum bid accordingly.
