    I'm guessing lead seals; not coins.

    Y'all please note, the finder lives in Macedonia/Greece. I believe his finds are coins, specifically copper or bronze coins... they appear to be the Ancient Greek equivalent of Spanish "Cob" coins, being hammer-struck chunks of metal.

    Yes, I stand corrected. The top coin (may the reverse of the second coin) appears to be a 'nummus'; a pre-reform copper coin from the period 491-498; during the reign of Anastasius I as shown on page 37 of David Sear's book entitled 'Byzantine Coins and their Values' (2010 reprinted edition)
    At that time, Sear valued the coin at 15 pounds sterling in F and 35 pounds sterling on VF. IF the second coin is the reverse of the first coin, it shows the bust of Anastasius. A second choice, with the same design, would be a copper 'follis' of 23-27 mm. If so, the date range would be 498-518.
    Thanks 'nhbenz'

    To further my embarrassement, the bottom coin (yes, a coin) is actually a copper 16 'nummi' coin minted during the reign of Justinian I. (527-565) Sear 175; same source reference.

    The first is Anastasius 491-498. It's 10mm. It is so impressive how can this little very thin coin, lying on the surface and still have all the details!
