Medieval Knights Templar finger ring

Founded in Jerusalem in 1118 by Hugo de Payns and eight other French knights, with the name of Poor Knights of Christ. Their mission was to protect pilgrims who came to the Holy Places. Later, the king of Jerusalem, Baldwin II, installed them in the near the ancient temple of Solomon palace, so they changed their name to the Knights Templar. During the time of the Crusades, the Templars actively participated in the defense of Palestine, which had many strengths. At the same time they acted as bankers pilgrims, so they obtained great wealth. Being expelled the Christians of Palestine, the Templars retreated to Cyprus. In the Iberian peninsula they were established during the twelfth century; first in Catalonia, Aragon and Navarra. They were responsible for the defense of the borders and participated in numerous expeditions against the Muslims (conquest of Lleida, Tortosa, Valencia, Mallorca, etc.). On the death of Alfonso the Battler were named heirs, along with other military orders, the kingdom of Aragon; in exchange for his resignation inheritance received various strengths. All this contributed to the economic and social dominance of the Templars were ever increasing, so that in the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries owned large estates in the eastern part of the peninsula. In the castellanoleonés kingdom they were established shortly after Aragon, also collaborating in the task of Recapture. Alfonso VII gave them the strength of Calatrava; They collaborated in making Cuenca, in the famous battle of Las Navas de Tolosa (1212) and the conquest of Seville. In France, the Templars had become bankers of kings. Philip IV the Fair, dedicated to seize their property, convinced Pope Clement V that initiate a process against the Templars, accusing them of impiety (1307). The Grand Master of the Order, Jacques de Molay, and 140 members were arrested. Presumed innocent at the Council of Vienne (1311), Clement V dissolved the order and created a commission to reeprendió the process. They were sentenced to prison, but the royal council of Philip IV sentenced to death by relapses. The king seized their chattels and gave his possessions to the hospital. In the other European countries did not prosper the allegations but, following the dissolution of the order, the Templars were dispersed and their property passed to the Crown (Castilla), other orders new foundation (Montesa in Valencia and Jesus Christ in Portugal).

Appropriate to yesterday (April 26th was Aurelius’ birthday) your “Big Roman 2” is an as of Marcus Aurelius (Augustus, 161-180 AD)
The legends are totally trashed, but there’s just enough on the reverse to see it’s one of the “laundry list” type, (P M TR P [XYZ] IMP [VWX]) [C]OS (III) I’m pretty sure that the device is a figure of Pietas standing facing, both hands outstretched to sides, sacrificing over candelabrum-altar and holding box of incense, S – C in lower fields.
That’s just a guess, but it’s probably not very far off if it’s incorrect.

I have recorded this as EMC 2022.0187.

This is the Runic Æthiliraed type (Type 105), which has the runes for Æthili-raed in two lines. In the 19th century it was suggested that this is Æthelred of Mercia (674-704), but a moneyer's name is another possibility.

Now the  piece you call “Big Roman 3” is also an as, but there is even less I can be certain about since the condition is so rough.
I believe it might be Antoninus Pius (138-161 AD.)

I can’t make anything out of the reverse devices, perhaps I’m seeing “CO[M?]” around 11:00 - 12:00 in this orientation – or what I’m seeing as an “O” might be a figure’s head?
Sorry I can’t tell you much more than that on the basis of what I can pick out of the photos.

Very unusual 5 mm thick Roman coin sent for ID

7.66g, 19.48 dia, 4.86mm thick

This is, I believe, a pretty uncommon find in British soil.
I can’t be 100% positive about details, since the legend is obscured with encrustations, but it appears this is a potin tetradrachm from Roman Alexandria (Egypt).
I can’t tell which ruler it is, although by the style of the portrait, it would have to be near the end of the period when the mint at Alexandria was still producing a few “Provincial” issues for use only in the homeland. Along with the entire Provincial mint system, all Provincial issues were scrapped. Alexandria and a few other major mints continued on striking Imperial types. Most Provincial mints were closed and the granting of mint rights to a city was no longer an important influence Rome had over “foreign” areas – they were no longer considered “foreign”, and after the changeover at Alexandria, all mints in the Empire struck only Imperial types.
Alexandria issued its final Provincial coins for the rulers of the 1st Tetrarchy (Diocletian, Maximian, Constantius I and Galerius), thereafter producing only Imperial types and denominations.
Eagles were a really common reverse type on the Egyptian potin tetradrachms and can be seen on some issues of the coins of almost every Roman ruler for whom coins were struck among the Provincial issues of Alexandria.
The photo is of a tetradrachm of Claudius II, “Gothicus” (who was the successor to Gallienus) Gothicus’ short reign was between 268-270 AD.
It’s the only prepared photo I could find (my website recently having been demolished, images of examples are a lot more challenging to find at the moment.) but I did find this one on which the eagle is in the same posture as the eagle on the reverse of your coin: standing to right, wings closed, head to left, wreath in beak.
Yours is probably a somewhat later ruler than Gothicus, but these were only struck up into the early 290’s, so it wouldn’t be long after the coin in the photo (from around 271/2 AD.)
The style of the portrait, the diameter and weight are appropriate for an Egyptian potin tetradrachm of one of the tetrarchs. Diocletian and Maximian are most commonly found on these – the Caesars, Constantius I and Galerius are scarce to rare - Without having a few letter of the obverse legend, I can’t say who is likely to be portrayed on yours.
