Hi Phantom,
     Photos 8, 9, 10, and 11 appear to be Sassanian bead seals, circa 3rd to 7th century AD., the cylinder seals are probably much earlier. If you wish to pursue your interests in Sassanian seals, I can suggest two publications. I don't think they are on line, so you may have to go to a library. They are:
1.  Bivar, A.D.H.  Catalogue of the Western Asiatic Seals in the British Museum, Stamp Seals, II. The Sassanian Dynasty. London, The British Museum, 1969.
2.  Frye, Richard N. Sasanian Remains from Qasr-i Abu Nasr: Seals, Sealings and Coins. Cambridge, Mass., Harvard University Press, 1973.
     I hope this helps.
