UNLISTED OFFICINA - Ι. RIC lists only officinae Γ, Є and Ζ (p. 624). Dot in exergue hardly visible. But see also footnote 4 on p. 624: "Evidence for this issue is far from strong; it is likely that • in the mint-mark may sometimes have been a misreading of : (as in the next mark). It is, however, included here on the supposition that it may in fact exist".
