NOT IN RIC

UNLISTED OFFICINA - Δ. RIC lists only officinae B and Є (p. 542). Note that Bruun lists for this issue only coins with rev. legend break CONS-ERVATORI because, in his opinion, coins with rev. legend break CONSER-VATORI were minted before the death of Maximinus Daza and belong to RIC VI (HERACLEA 73-75).

See p. 533-534: "The mint-mark SMHT/A remained the same all through and was continued after Daza's withdrawal with exactly the same reverse as before the occupation. The exclusion of Daza and a slight change of the break of the reverse legend are the only indications of antyhing new". Compare also series (ii) and (v) on p. 534.
