Need help determining if these four old coins are real, value, description

I could use some help. I normally collect us and some foriegn coins and currency. I was offered these four coins for $200- and neither of us know their value. His sister travel the world and gave them to him many years ago.

-are the descriptions for each coin correct?
-what is the approximate value for each coin?

Thank you in advance for your help.

    They look real to me. RIC stands for Roman Imperial Coinage, the go to text for old Roman coins. The previous owner did the work and ID'ed them. I think the descriptions are accurate, (but I have not verified this myself). I agree with tcollects comment above that they probably worth about $20 each. You search the eBay sold listings and see what similar coins have sold for.

    Rec78- thank you I did not know what RIC meant.
    I also posted on the world coin & ancient coin forum, which I received good input.
