UNLISTED OFFICINA - ς. RIC lists for this issue officinae Α, Γ and Δ (p. 514). But note that THESSALONICA 33-35 have probably the same bust type, so in fact all officinae are listed in RIC except officina ς. See CORRIGENDA, VOL. VI, p. 514. See also footnote 6 from p. 514: "Coins of officinae Є (and ς ?) may belong to the next Group [...]".
