C2 Roman Republican Anonymous struck bronzes, McCabe group C2, Related to RRC 80 dolphin. Narrow heads, long tall prowstem, peaked deck structure. 50 gram As.

Elements of the design which are like RRC 80 include: narrow elongated heads, long tall curved prowstem peaked deck structure, and horizontal keel lines. The coins are struck on thick dumpy and relatively short flans which compare to coins of RRC 80 or RRC 89.
