UNLISTED OFFICINA - Q. RIC lists for this type officinae P, S and T (p. 389). But note that it could be ROMA 338b (officina Q also not attested) 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.
