UNLISTED OFFICINA - H. RIC lists for this type only officina A (in "Addenda and Corrigenda", p. 719). Note that officina "H" is not expected (although also not impossible) and it could be in fact untypically engraved "A". For detailed discussion of this issue see: Lars Ramskold, "The silver emissions of Constantine I from Constantinopolis, and the celebration of the millennium of Byzantion in 333/334 CE", Jahrbuch für Numismatik und Geldgeschichte 2016, vol. 68, pp. 145-198.
