Normally I don't purchase ancients at a flea market but these coins came cheap and were from a batch of well circulated and well patinated coins. The smaller follis appears to be a Justin and Sophie one  while the larger may be an Anastasias or Justinian piece. The smallest I don't recognize and it may not be Byzantine at all. Any help attributing that one would be much appreciated. Not exactly a treasure trove but for $20 the patina was worth it.

The middle size coin isn't Justin II and Sophia but rather:

The small coin seems to be this type from Phokis:
