UNLISTED OFFICINA - Δ. RIC lists officinae Β, Γ and Є (p. 533). General note from p. 523: "Providentia Deorum Quies Augg was struck for the Seniors, generally with SF in field and only very rarely without: the sixth officina seems to have been used only exceptionally. The issue [...] scarce for the Seniors".
