RIC VI, -- (cf. RIC 671-678 Trier for types)

Note: On p. 208, footnote I states "The significance of the letters in the reverse field has not yet been explained." What appears to have happened is this reverse type was created in Trier and the die sent to Cyzicus to copy. In error, the celator did not realize the exergual mark was for Trier as was to replace it with a Cyzicene type, possibly due to the precedent set with the post-reform radiate folles where a field mark was used instead of an exergual. Two other attributes point to justify this hypothesis: Cyzicus did not use the longer version of BAEATISSIMO on this issue as standard and the style of the reverse is typical of retirement issues from Cyzicus vs. Trier as evidenced by the employment of a small branch for Quies and the generally compact nature of this mint, versus the often bold and grandiose style of Trier.

In any event, even under the listings for Trier, this example is not noted for officina 6, although officinas 4 and 6 were the only documented ones in RIC which produced this series.
