    I am no expert on roman coins but I have a few from 100-145AD. I found values in the hundreds of dollars but personally watched quite a few sell in the 30-50 range on ebay.

    The first is a denarius of Hadrian. COS III dates it to 119. The denarii of Hadrian are plentiful and common, even in much higher grades, so I wouldn't expect to pay more than $20 for it.

    Edit: you have to take my valuations with a grain of salt. I'm a cheapskate. But you certainly might get more on eBay. I would start the bidding at $20.

    The large coin in post 1 is an antoninianus of Philip I, another common emperor. It looks pretty good, although the reverse is weak. I'd fork out $40 for it.

    they all look cleaned, so you may want to note that if listing on ebay or you will most likely run into issues. I have had many buyers buy coins then give an assortment of reason I should send a partial refund. I see partial refund requests more and more as a way they can keep the coin but still get a portion of the cost back.

    Almost all ancient coins are cleaned. Most of them have to be. It's a different aesthetic altogether from collecting moderns.

    Around $30 USD each.

    At a glance it seems to me that the values here are on the conservative side; without having bought one of these in a few years, I'd guess closer to $50 each. The emperors and empresses depicted appear fairly common. Hadrian, Trajan, and Marcus Aurelius may be slightly tougher than the rest, but they are by no means rare. Unfortunately, the coins are a bit too worn to be worth more.

    Many thanks John! I am quite agree that at auctions fair opening bid could be 20$ for most of the coins that i show. About antoninianus of Philip I, i am not sure, i trade it for other silvers here and previous owner value it in 40-45$, it's in good shape and i would better stay itfor my kids than sell so cheap.
    All coins are dug, how else it could be saved for so long at this terretories, but it washed olnly with water and soap, no
    chemical treatment or tooling.
    Thanks all for replies
