UNLISTED OFFICINA - Є. RIC lists only officina Δ (p. 666). See also note on p. 651: "A now rare issue, which was presumably of very limited size. Only officinae Α, Γ (very rare) and Δ have been evidenced or recorded, but conceivably Є may exist. The formula S P continues: the wreath alludes to the vicennalia of the Augusti. Date, c. 303-4". Now officina Є is at least attested.
