G4 Roman Republican Anonymous struck bronzes McCabe group G4, RRC56 Large Janus heads. Tall narrow curved prowstem. 35 gram As.

Heads of Janus are large, similar to those on group G3. Prowstems are tall, narrow and curved. The devices are about the same sizes as the flans. There appears to be a stylistic relationship to the heavy issue bronzes of RRC 61 Victory. This is a small transitional issue between the main group G issues and the post-war group J1.
