I have been working through the collection of degraded Roman coins I received as a gift and have four, more difficult coins to identify.
The previous thread at http://goccf.com/t/409249 was incredibly useful in identifying the previous batch of coins.

This dapper looking emperor on a 2.21g, 20mm coin. Reverse has two people facing each other. Figure on the right is standing up straight.



1.77g, 16mm. Radiate crown. "UC" on front, a distinct "H" mint mark on reverse. Looks like a soldier holding a stick.



1.95g, 17mm. I can't even guess what's on the reverse. Some sort of animal?



This last one is quite tough.

6.54g, 24mm. "VSHO" on the obvers.



Thank you very much.

Thank you very much Palouche and maridvnvm, I spent quite a while looking for these coins (especially number 3) and couldn't find them myself.

I'll keep looking for the last coin but I think it may be too degraded.

Thank you JohnConduitt, I think you have it spot on.

I didn't notice the rear has a large "SC" on it. What I thought was "VSHO" on the obverse looks like "VSTPO" on 'RIC I (second edition) Augustus 437'. The hairline and sharp end to the hair above the forehead also matches my coin.

Brilliant. Thank you.
