UNLISTED OFFICINA - Γ. RIC lists only officina Α [rarity R4] (p. 491). General note about this issue from p. 486: "Struck from five officinae (though not all of these are now well evidenced) and at a weight of c. 3.3 gm., this was in the names of all four rulers: the reverse type was the late three-turreted camp-gate (open and without doors) which had already appeared at Thessalonica, with legend Virtus Militum. The coins are now of considerable rarity".

Listed in Gautier - Serdica (p. 106, no. 8).
