RIC VII, --
Ex Ofek A. Coins, VCoins, December 2006

Note: This exergual mark is not known for campgates.

Here's what we have from known and documented coins in RIC:

SMHT with field officina mark: 313-314
PROVIDENT_IAE AVGG NN: 316-317
IMP LICINIVS AVG: 316-320
J1left bust type: 316-320
Campgate reverse type with three turrets: 316-320

So, based on the ranges of dates from the various attributes, and assuming Bruun has correctly placed the unique example with NN reverse legend in 316-317, it would be prudent to put it in the same time range as the other NN campgate. Since the exergual mark SMHT precedes the HTB exergual mark of RIC 14, I would hazard a guess this new specimen is actually from an undocumented series using what was a fairly recent exergual series and introduced the J1left bust, short Licinius legend and campgate reverse to Heraclea. Thus, preceding RIC 14 as the first Heraclean campgate in RIC VII. This chronology would stand to reason since it would give us:

PROVIDENT_IAE AVGG N N - SMHT | A
PROVIDENT_IAE AVGG N N - HTA
PROVIDEN_TIAE AVGG - HTA
PROVIDEN_TIAE AVGG - MHTA

Keep in mind, the campgate reverse at this time had also not been formally rolled out to the imperial mints. Rome was the second mint to issue campgates (318-319) and all of the other mints which did use the campgate reverse didn't start until 323 or later in the AE3 module. So, this may actually be the first issue with the campgate reverse in the AE3 module entirely.
