UNLISTED OFFICINA - Δ. RIC lists only single specimen from officina Β. Additionally, in footnote 3 on p. 499 Sutherland regards this coin as "presumably hybrid"; which is now doubtful. General note about this issue from p. 490: "The coins as a whole are scarce [...] All four officinae worked impartially for all three persons [Galerius Maximian, Maximinus, Galeria Valeria]. The weight suggests a date late in 307 or in 308 [...]".
