Welcome to CCF! Please crop your photos in the future before posting, no need to see so much background and rotate pics so coins are are not turned. I think the preference is just one coin per post. Number 4 may be Constantine I divus but it's pretty worn. Number 5 looks Greek to me.

Thx guys, I have an opportunity to buy these. Would you recommend buying? I am not a collector myself (yet).

the CCF !

I agree: most probably more than one of coins pictured is a tourist copy fake.
Due diligence required before deciding to buy.
Search Google Images: 'tourist copy fakes of ancient coins',
to get a visual idea of what tourist copy fakes look like.
then,
go to the VCOINS website: ancient coins,
and search:
'Valentinian 1 Victory reverse',
'Maximian Genius reverse,
and
'Galerius Genius reverse',
as Palouche has already identified.

I'm pretty sure the first one is not genuine either. Kind of has the "Bulgarian face" to it.

With one coin out of five definitely fake, and a question mark on at least one other, I'd steer clear of them. The seller either doesn't know fake from real, or does know and is lying to you.

These would be a pass for me too.

Added: Are you in Amman? As I recall, there were a couple places with coins near the Hashemite Plaza.

I am sorry 8 should have clarified this before.

The first 4 are from a seller offered to me. He told me he found them in Petra, Jordan.

The last one however is already mine, bought from a bedouine lady table sale.
