OK, i will work on that this weekend
The coin you show at 3:59 is a Byzantine pentanummium, that is a big E for 5. That is the reverse. The obverse shows the bust of the emperor, probably Justinian I. Here is a coin I own that is pretty similar to yours.
JUSTINIAN I, 527-565, Pentanummium, Theoupolis (Antioch)
Obv: D N IVSTINIANVS P P AVG. DIademed, draped and cuirassed bust right. Rev: Large E with central cross; star to right. Sear 244. 16 mm 2.4 g
Pretty cool hu? A 6th century coin!
I think I saw a Roman city commemorative there at 4:35. Here is a thread in the ancients section that shows some, you can see a few like your in there.
