NOT IN RIC

UNLISTED OFFICINA - A. RIC lists for this type only officinae Γ and Δ (s. 591). Not listed in Bastien AMGM. General note from p. 576: "A rare memorial type was struck for Galerius in the name of Maximinus as Aug. Fil. [...] Date, c. mid-311".

Note that officina Δ is cited in RIC after Maurice (iii, p. 101) but it could be actually officina A and therefore off. Δ is not confirmed yet. See example of CYZICUS 75, off. Δ from Maurice: plate IV, no. 9.
