G1 Roman Republican Anonymous struck bronzes McCabe group G1 style variants, RRC56 Neat high-relief devices, well-centered on broad flans. Line-bounded bulbous prowstems. Small Janus heads. 40 gram As.

Coins have neat high-relief devices, and are carefully struck on well-made flans that are usually larger than the design circle. Asses have small Janus heads relative to the die-circle. Styles are an evolution of series A2. Prowstems are line-bounded and bulbous.
