J2 Roman Republican Anonymous struck bronzes McCabe group J2, Related RRC 132 to RRC 150. Includes both flat and peaked deck structures. Obverse style less fine than group J1.

This is a mixed style group with both flat and peaked deck structure As and fractions resembling a range of issues from RRC 132 ME through RRC 150 M.TITINI, which are dated in RRC to the 190s – 180s BC. Obverse styles are less finely engraved and less dignified than group J1. This group includes the I-above prow peaked deck structure anonymous As, which has usually been classified as RRC 197-198B/1a, but in fact relates to the RRC 145 Victory and spearhead type.
