L2 Roman Republican Anonymous struck bronzes, McCabe group L2, Late first century BC anonymous issues copying the style of late second century BC issues. 20-30 gram As.

Lightweight, issues including As denomination which usually indicates an official issue. Reverses have short rounded prowstems, very wide deck structure with angled ends. Flans are thin. The Trientes are known from Pompeii in a 100 BC archaeological context. The Asses are of the same style. No relation to any RRC issue.
