E1 Roman Republican Anonymous struck bronzes, McCabe group E1, Related to RRC 106 staff and club. Wide staring eyes, thick hairlines. Concave reverses, keel lines converge. 35 gram As.

Obverses are in high relief with wide staring eyes and thick hairlines in Etruscan style. Reverses are concave, on thick dumpy flans, and often flat struck at edges. Prows have line-bounded prowstems, square deck structures, and a prominent line to the left of the deck structure. The keel lines are widely spaced at left and converge into prominent rostrum tridens.
