Do these Greek bronzes look fake?

Some recent research only has made me a bit concerned about these coins I purchased from a VCoins seller. I'll withhold my reasons for being suspicious because I'd first appreciate hearing the opinions of those more knowledgeable than I on fakes.

Do these three coins look genuine?
