NOT IN RIC

UNLISTED OFFICINA - ς. RIC lists this type with K only in a middle field [TREVERI 674], but description was taken from Seyrig's manuscript and it could be a slip (see footnote 3 on p. 208). It leads to conclusion that TREVERI 674 does not exist. Note that there is also another error in RIC and TREVERI 671-678 mixes two issues - one from Treveri and one from Cyzicus (see: CORRIGENDA, VOL. VI, p. 208). Coin formally could be listed after TREVERI 674 (or as TREVERI 674 after correction), but in fact it belongs to CYZICUS 22a-23b.
