UNLISTED OFFICINA - B. RIC lists officinae A and Γ (p. 470). General note from p. 447: "In rarity and other respects a numbered continuation from (xvi), perhaps with a more even use of officinae. The mark, last in Group I, is also the first in Group II. Date, c. 305". Note that there is an error in RIC. The reverse legend starts with SACR, not SACRA (as on p. 470). See Corrigenda to RIC VI, pp. 447, 449, 470, 473 and 704.

NOTES

From Dirty Old Coins.
