Inquiry to identify some ancient coins

4 posts in this topic

Greetings everyone, 

I am inexperienced when it comes to ancient coins so I thought maybe someone would help me with these coins and tell me if they are worth something decent.

The pictures are attached to this post.

Waiting for your valuable input on the matter :)

Two things. It's great that we have weights and diameters, so that part is fine. We usually have to tell people that; great job there.

First, please crop them closely and repost them. If that doesn't result in large images, then please retake and crop them so that we get sizable images. I can work with the lighting issues if I have bigger pics to work with. The lighting issues make copper and bronze coins harder to read, because the patinated metal is naturally dark, but larger shots will compensate.

Second, please give me some idea of where they were found/acquired, and where you think they might originate. I've got a fair library of ancients references, but it's really nice to have some idea where to begin. The world of ancient coinage is a big one spread over many cultures. Right now the only thing I can say just about for sure is that they do not relate to the Islamic world, which I suspect you already know.
