UNLISTED OFFICINA - P. RIC lists officinae S and T (p. 391). But note that it could be ROMA 372 (officina P also not attested) with bust draped and cuirassed. See CORRIGENDA, VOL. VI, BUST TYPES SEEN FROM REAR. General note about this issue from p. 349: "[...] this issue [...] is also the last of the period. [...] Soli Invicto Comiti was probably struck [...] mainly in Constantine's name, included rare varieties for Maximinus. [...] the coins are scarce. The issue, which was comparatively small, falls in the first half of 313". See also CORRIGENDA, VOL. VI, p. 388-390.
