Coin 1 is an Alexandria provincial tetradrachm of the Roman emperor Philip, year 5. I don't recall offhand what exactly this corresponds to in AD years.

Coins 2 and 3 look Roman Republican; I don't know a lot about those, so can't identify further.

This should probably be moved to the relevant subforum.

...I thought it would be moved to the ancient coin subforum, but whatever. Should have phrased it better.

EDIT: fixed, thanks!

I thought so, too. Apparently my fingers were thinking something else in the drop-down. Fixed.

Quintus Titius for the second. Not sure about authenticity.

Third seems to similar to some emissions of the Arverni, a Celtic/Gallic group. Don't know about authenticity with this one, either. Here's a link (may not work, though) to an Arverni stater...perhaps the type being referenced?

AD 247-248, I believe.

I have issues with all three coins. I don't like the look of them, especially the middle one.

The middle one looks weird to me as well. The right one is apparently supposed to be an extremely popular and extremely rare type (possibly also in wrong metal), which is obviously concerning.

Can't see anything wrong with the left one, but I'm not exactly an expert on this type, and the possible association with the other two is concerning just by itself.
