G3 Roman Republican Anonymous struck bronzes McCabe group G3, RRC56 Large Janus heads. Long slim near horizontal prowstem. 35 gram As

Heads of Janus are large, similar to those on group G2 but with generally happier features. Prows have a long, slim, near horizontal prowstem. The devices are about the same size as the flans.
