UNLISTED OFFICINA - B. RIC lists only officina Ζ (p. 633). General note about this issue from p. 607: "Maximinus [...] position is emphasized by the conspicuous (if rare) coins with obv. showing him helmeted and armoured and with. rev. Maximinus Nobilissimus Caesar, showing him as Princeps Iuventutis. [...] c. 309-310".

Note that the description of ANTIOCHIA 120 in RIC is incorrect (see: CORRIGENDA, VOL. VI, p. 633).
