AA Roman Republican Anonymous struck bronzes, McCabe group AA, RRC 38 Semilibral prow-right Sextans, Uncia, Semuncia, Quartuncia; obverse heads face left on Uncia, right on other coins

The obverse types are as usual except that Roma faces left on Uncia. Reverse show prow right with elaborate details, including an elevated fighting platform with club within, and waves under keel. There is often a small wing between mid-wale and rostrum tridens. There are various engraving styles and flan. Coins can be classified by weight alone as the weights do not overlap with any later issue.
