Mint in Rome   Today Roma, and still in Italy! :_)

During the reign of Probus the mint in Rome operated from 7 officinae (workshops).

The first issue was marked with XXI and a Greek officina numeral in exergue or in field.

Subsequent issues were marked with the letter R followed by Greek numerals from A to Z, often with symbols dividing the city letter and the numeral. The final ussue has the letters of the word AEQVITI in place of the symbol.
