UNLISTED OFFICINA - B. RIC lists only officina Δ (p. 550). For the types of diadem see footnote 3 on p. 538. The distinction between plain diadem (see example of HERACLEA 70) and rosette diadem is not very sharp. However, all diadems "where the suggestion of a band in the diadem has disappeared entirely" are rosette diadems.
