NOT IN RIC

UNLISTED OFFICINA - T. RIC lists for this type only officina S (p. 237). Note that description in RIC could be misleading. The "fold of chlamys" sometimes means chlamys which Bruun usually describes as "flying under l. arm" (e.g. ARLES 19-20). There is also no mention about globe in l. hand and raised r. hand. For comparison, see picture of ARLES 44 (similar rev., but Sol with chlamys across l. shoulder).
