G2 Roman Republican Anonymous struck bronzes McCabe group G2, RRC56 Large Janus heads, low-relief, unsmiling. Line-bounded kinked-back prowstem. 40 gram As.

Heads on all denominations are in low-relief and are distinctly unsmiling. The head of Janus is consistently larger than on group G1. Prowstems are line-bounded and kinked-back at the end. Devices are about the same sizes as their flans.
