NOT IN RIC

UNLISTED OFFICINA - Γ. RIC lists only officinae Α, Δ and Є (p. 655). Note that it is unclear (cf. footnote 78 on p. 655) if pearl-diadem with rosette counts as rosette-diadem (bust E8) or as pearl-diadem (bust E9). Note, however, that this coin might be regarded as an ancient imitation.
