UNLISTED OFFICINA - ς. RIC lists for this type officinae Β, Γ and Є (p. 568). General note from p. 552: "No more than five officinae have yet been evidenced for what is certainly the final issue of the period, consisting of scarce Iovi Conservatori coins (of low weight, as in the last issue) struck for Maximinus alone. Date, 313". Note that now six officinae are attested.
