UNLISTED OFFICINA - P. RIC lists only officina S (p. 391). General note about this issue from p. 348-9: "The rare Victoria Auggg is for Constantine alone. So, too, are the halves, Paci Perpet-XII and Virt Exercit Gall-XVI; both were produced at all four officinae [...]. The latter type had already appeared on the gold of Trier c. 310 and after, and it now commemorated the happy outcome of what had been an unbroken impetus: the occasion is less one for rejoicing in victory than for rejoicing in the liberation of Rome by the loyalty of the army of Gaul. 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. 391.
