UNLISTED OFFICINA - Δ. RIC lists only officina A (p. 494; rarity R4). General note from p. 487-8: "Rare coins (with SM) are known for the Augusti only, with officinae Α, Β, Γ and Є evidenced: their type is a continuation of that of Group I, and the weight remains at c. 3.3 gm".

Listed in Gautier - Serdica (p. 108, no. 25). But note that officina Δ is in fact attested also in RIC. See CORRIGENDA, VOL. VI, p. 494.
