I have three ancient coins, which I am fairly certain are genuine, but cannot figure out their exact id. Does anyone know these coins?

The large coin is very thick and heavy, the top right is fairly thin, the bottom right is fairly thick.

Thank you kindly! =)

The coin at the upper right hand corner appears to be a Bronze Follis (312-313 A.D.)of Licinius I. Reverse: IOVI CONSERVATORI AVGG NN, Jupiter standing left holding Victory on globe and scepter, eagle with wreath in beak left.

#1 Appears to be Sestertius of the Emperor Marcus Aurelius, 161-180 AD, Obverse: IMP CAES M AVREL ANTONINVS AVG, reverse looks like Salus standing left, feeding a snakeon an alter and holding a scepter.

#2 As pointed out is Licinius I.

#3 Appears to be the Emperor Tetricus I 271-274 AD,can't make out the full obverse inscription, but I believe it's IMP C TETRICVS PF AVG, revers is Hilaritas standing left holding palm and cornucopia.

I recognized the Licinus I--they're pretty distinctive portraits.

Awesome, thanks guys for coming to the rescue.
Too bad that Marcus Aurelius piece is in such a rough shape, since they are quite valuable in good condition.
Thanks again! =)
