UNLISTED OFFICINA - Α. RIC lists for this type only officina Β (p. 540); but see also CORRIGENDA, VOL. VI, p. 540. General note from p. 527: "Iovi Conservatori continues as the sole type: it occurs commonly for Licinius and Maximinus, rarely for Constantine. Both juniors still have the longer P F Inv Aug legend. The wreath, as at Thessalonica [...], anticipates Licinius' quinquennalia of 313. Date, 312".
