UNLISTED OFFICINA - T. RIC lists for this type only officina S (p. 389). But note that it could be ROMA 334 (listed for officina T) with bust draped and cuirassed. See CORRIGENDA, VOL. VI, BUST TYPES SEEN FROM REAR. General note about this issue from p. 348-9: "[Also common] was Soli Invicto Comiti, in different versions, of which three are primary and often very common: produced from all four officinae [...] The whole issue, in which the four officinae seem to be fairly evenly used throughout, falls late in 312 and early 313". See also: CORRIGENDA, VOL. VI, p. 388-390.
