Yes good question, but perhaps you can tell us a little bit about whether these all came from the same source or not. Also helpful would be a pics showing the edges of these pieces.

@KN, I can see a parting line pretty clearly on that last photo that you have posted. I'm pretty sure that it should be struck so that one should be a fake also. I can't tell well enough to offer an opinion on the remaining, but trust @echizento's opinion.

Are you sure that its a parting line not just streched when it was hammered.

Let's let some others weigh in--my thought is that it sure looks like a parting line, but you may get alternate opinions.

The Athena/owl coin is a copper "tourist copy" replica of a silver tetradrachm.

The two smaller Black Sea coins are very commonly faked by the fake-makers in Bulgaria; their skill is higher than most. I personally don't buy Black Sea coins unless it's from a dealer with a good reputation.

I wouldn't trust any of these coins. The style looks wrong on all of them, in addition to the concern about the possibility that they are cast.
