    Coin Identification Help

    Hey all-
    Couple weeks ago I was at a coin show and bought some "Ancient" coins. Should've looked into them more prior to doing so, but figured why not. Came home and started googling to try to confirm what they were identified as, realizing I probably got screwed over, but figured post some pics here in the hopes of someone being able to help identify or point me towards some sites to help. Thanks in advance!

    These 5 were simply labeled "Ancient Arabic Lot-North Africa". Rough condition, I know, but $3 for all 5...

    These 5 were in a grab bin of "Ancient Greek/Roman/Arabic" coins. Some details can be made out:

    This one was identified as: "Ancient Rome-Egypt. Sosius under Mark Anthony 18BC. 12 Piastres"
    Googled and yeah, didn't really find much of anything that'd match. Looks like a guy in a helmet/hair, and a horse on the reverse.

    I appreciate it, but not really concerned about the money, but more trying to identify to see if they were indeed the coins they were "advertised" as. Was the "Roman" coin really from 18BCE, or is it from closer to 400ad. Was the Chinese one what he claimed or did my google search disprove that, thus casting more doubt on all the rest... Also, since I don't really know what the coins are exactly, how could I look for them on ebay or know what coins are similar...

    The first of the five "Ancient Greek/Roman/Arabic" shows two roman legionaries facing and Army Standard.

    Thats so-called Gloria Exercitus coinage from the Constantinid dynasty (founded by Constantin the Great). Since we are talking about the eastern Roman half of the Empire, It is likely a nummus or something multiple of that:

    Seems like the war in the levante is used for some "nighthawking" work.
