    There is a pic of a small silver hammered there obviously not roman.

    Gallienus and 2x Constantine II - If those are random rather than selected as the best, you should have fun with the lot.

    With that beard (-??), and the silver content on an antoninianus (thank you, radiate), I was gravitating more to Postumus.

    Rough one .. I think you need to focus on the reverse if you have any hope of an ID.

    Another silver it looks, any guesses? Looks like a soldier/emperor with a shield?

    Edit: think I found it on a site, noted as unlisted.

    Your coin is a common bronze issue for Constantine I, though they can be silvered.

    similar to the example below (sold) though yours does not have the horseman on shield and may not be the same RIC number as I can't make out any important details like the mintmark and I am not completely sure of the obverse legend.

    Constantine I
    A.D. 318-19
    18mm 3.0gm
    IMP CONSTAN-TINVS AVG -- high crested helmet, cuir., spear across r. shoulder, shield on left arm inscribed with horseman.
    VICTORIAE LAETAE PRINC PERP -- two Victories stg., facing one another, together holding shield inscribed VOT PR on altar.
    In ex. BSIS
    RIC VII Siscia 56

    it looks like a Gallienus with Sol reverse, similar to below.
