The fourth one looks like Constantius Gallus.

If you post each coin in a separate thread, and in the ID required forum, it makes it easier for us to tell which coins have been identified and which haven't.

Some general observations: the pics, while large, often aren't clear enough to see the details quickly. Better pics might help, but the coins might be too badly corroded. Some of the coins appear to have been cleaned by electrolysis or a similarly harsh method; this cleaning may have destroyed key details which could have helped identify the coin, but perhaps the coin would have been too badly corroded in any event.

So, from the pics, here's what I can see.

#1: Appears to be Greek, based on the beaded border. Perhaps Roman provincial.

#2: Appears to be late Roman; clearer pics would certainly allow proper identification of this one.

#3: There's not much left of this one, but I think it's early Roman Imperial, based on the portrait style. I can't tell if the lettering on the reverse is Greek or Latin.

#4: This one's the only one identifiable from the pics: Late Roman bronze, Constantius II, reverse SPES REIPVBLICE (Hope of the Republic), emperor standing holding globe and inverted spear. Unfortunately, the mintmark is missing from your coin (it should be below the ground-line the emperor on the reverse is standing on). Example of a similar coin on Wildwinds.

#5: Roman Provincial, I think.

#6: Roman provincial, I think.

Sorry I can't be much more help than that.
