Here are the entries for round 5 from Chip Scoppa.

The coins are listed as 1B throuogh 6B from the upper left clockwise to the lower left.

Coin 1B:
Constantine I (307 - 337 AD)
Obv:  IMPCONSTANTINVSAVG  -  Helmeted, laureate & cuirassed bust right
Rev:  VICTORIAE LAETAE PRINC PERP  -  Two Victories holding shield with VOT / PR inscribed on it, over an altar.
Struck at Arelate between 313 & 337 with TARL in exergue. Silvered AE3

Coin 2B:
Maximian (286 - 305 AD first reign)
Obv:  IMPCMAMAXIMIANVSPFAVG  -  Laureate head right
Rev:  GENIO POPVLI ROMANI  -  Genius standing left modius on head, naked but for chlsmys over left shoulder, right hand holding patera, left hand holding cornucopiae.
Struck at Siscia in 305 with SIS in exergue.  Silvered 1/4 follis (could have been struck at the moment of abdication of first reign per footnote in RIC VI page 471).

Coin 3B:
Constantivs II (337 - 361 AD)
Obv: [D] N [CONSTAN] - [T] IVSP [FAVG] (can only read what is not in the brackets, but it was enough for an attribution!!!)  -  Pearl diadem, draped and cuirassed bust right
Rev: FEL TEMP REPARATIO (with no dots between the words)  -  Phoenix, right on a globe with nothing in left, right or center fields.
Struck at Trier between 348 and 350 with three characters and a dot in extergue (could be TRPdot or TRSdot, both RIC VIII Trier 237). Half Centenionalis.
This was an interesting coin to attribute. I was able to get a solid attribution even with the very poor condition of this coin.  The keys, after the main Fel Temp - Pheonix on a globe, were the pearl diadem, the letters N & IVSP in the obverse legend, nothing in any of the fields and a three character exergue with a pellet at the end.

Coin 4B:
Julian II (361 - 363 AD)
Obv:  [D N IVLIAN] VS NOB [C] (can only read what is not in the brackets, but it was enough for an attribution!!!)  -  Bare-headed, draped and cuirassed bust right.
Rev: FEL TEMP REPARATIO  -  Soldier in Military Dress spearing a fallen horseman. An L in the left field.
Struck at Siscia between 355 and 360 with DSIS in the exergue. AE3
This was another interesting coin to attribute. I was able to get a solid attribution even with the very poor condition of this coin, too.  The keys, after the main Fel Temp fallen horseman were: the bare head bust, the letters in the obverse legend VSNOB, a very pitted "L" in the left field and the lettering in the exergue.

Coin 5B:
Constans (337 - 350 AD)
Obv:  CONSTANSPFAVG  -  Rosette diadem, draped, cuirassed bust right.
Rev:  GLOR - IAEXERC - ITVS  -  Two soldiers flanking one laberum (a standard with a chi rho on it).
Struck at Siscia between 337 and 341 with a dot GSIS dot in the exergue.  AE4

"Coin" 6B:
Strap end / belt decoration.

For the MONETA printouts see the replies. I will not put them in as part of the contest, but they are posted to show the individual coins and more complete attributions.

Heer is the MONETA printout for the "COIN" 6B.

If this strap end was on the groin straps and it was bent like it is by a sword strike. I would say that must have really hurt. Shocked
