Image 5 of eight depicts 2 soldiers standing facing on another each holding spear and resting hand on shield on ground--standard in center. This image is called GLORIA EXERCITVS and was a typical reverse type for Constantivs II and other during the period AD 337-340.--just a guess.

Yes, that is the right reverse type. Although from the top of my head 3 Emperors used it.
I'll get Cru'dad to look at them & check because I can see a Theodosius wreath reverse as well. Also looks like am Emperor holding victory reverse.
They are all 4th C AD types.

The coin I referenced was actually a common reverse under the rule of Constantine the Great, Delmatius, Constantine Jr, Constans, and Constantius. Earlier and heavier ones have two standards between the soldiers while a change on weight standards was marked by the later, lighter coins showing a single standard between the soldiers.

The reverse of the coin shown on '6/8' shows an emperor standing, facing, head to right, holding trophy and Victory on globe. Arcadivis, Honorivs, and Theodosivs II used this image. The most common mint was Rome, but this image was also minted in Aquileia. Date range: AD 402-408.
