UNLISTED OFFICINA - Β. RIC lists officinae Α, Γ and Δ (p. 500). 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 [...]".
