[CORRECTION]. RIC lists for this type only officina P and cites A.N.S in Notes (p. 365). However, there is no single coin from officina P in ANS Collection but six from officina S. Also, for example, in the Cairo Hoard all five coins attributed as ROMA 120b are from officina S (see: William E. Metcalf, "The «Cairo» Hoard of Tetrarchic Folles", Revue belge de numismatique et de sigillographie 1974, CXX, p. 82, no. 369-373; two of these coins are in ANS Collection). See also C. E. King and A. Spaer, "A hoard of folles from Northern Sinai", Numismatic Chronicle 1977, p. 92 (two coins attributed as ROMA 120b from off. S).

Note that officina P may also exist (at least for hybrid) but is not attested yet.
