UNLISTED OFFICINA - Δ. RIC lists for this type officinae Α, Β, Γ and Є (p. 541). General note from p. 527: "In this differentiated issue, again showing a wreath, the existence of the fifth officina [...] is uncertain. The inclusion of SM in the mint-mark, coupled with its final absence at Thessalonica, is of interest. The only type is Iovi Conservatori Augg, scarce for all three rulers. [...] Date, 312".
