UNLISTED OFFICINA - ΔΙ. RIC lists for this type only officina Z (p. 644). General note about this issue from p. 611: "[...] only officinae A-AI and DI are evidenced, but it is probable that fifteen or fourteen were at work. The sole type is Herculi Victori, very rare for Licinius and Constantine, and scarce for Maximinus. Date, 313". Note that there is an error in RIC: officina mark is always in left field. See: CORRIGENDA, VOL. VI, p. 644.
