I am sure someone will be able to id these for you, they look like typical 4th century Roman bronzes. The best general book to get will be the 4th volume of Sear's Roman Coins and Their Values. In the meantime you try wildwinds also to help id the coins.

thank you very much Victor for your help

 

 

My pleasure. You asked about value also, and none of these coins are rare, and a few have condition issues. I would not pay more than a few dollars each, but then none are in my collecting focus!

 

jlueke already mentioned Wildwinds as a site for I.D.ing, but it is also useful for getting an idea of what a coin might be worth, as many have prices realized.

Thank you again Victor for your answer. For the last coin I have search where you have suggest in the Sear - Greek Imperial Coins and I have find something like that there. I have to buy a good loop to read beter the letters from the coins . There is a price for 45 english pound I think for a nice coins , that meanse I have pay a resonable price for this coins , 15 euro .
