UNLISTED OFFICINA - B. RIC lists only officinae A and Γ (p. 566). However, Voetter lists exactly and only officina B (see Voetter; p. 190, no. 4).

General note from p. 551: "Iovi Conservatori and Virtuti Exercitus both appear for Licinius and Maximinus, emissions for the former being the more scarce: coinage for Constantine is extremely rare. [...] Date, c. 311".
