"R" and "S", from Rome, plate 53 (2 photos, AE12), p. 378. Mint mark
"Although ... [this type] always has an officina number, this is placed
at the top of the die. In consequence, it is often missing in whole or
in part from the flan and is seldom recorded in publications, which do
not always distinguish it from a similar issue of Theodosius I, in
each Victory holds a separate wreath [Type 33]."
