UNLISTED OFFICINA - Β. RIC lists for this type only officina Α and Δ [rarity R2] (p. 542). General note about this issue from p. 528: "This issue falls into two sections, before and after Maximinus' capture of Heraclea. [...] In the second, Maximinus is seen to have introduced his own range of types, from which both Licinius and Constantine are excluded: Genio Augusti (scarce), Herculi Victori and Soli Invicto (both rare). Date, 313".
