NOT IN RIC

UNLISTED OFFICINA - Γ. RIC lists for this type only officinae A and Δ (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". See CORRIGENDA, VOL. VI, p. 484, 518, 540-541.
