A few Byzantine to ID!?

Hi, have a few Byzantine nummi scyphati to identify and just don't know where to start as I've never tried ID-ing these before, and haven't a clue what to look for. Thanks for any help!

Just a couple...

Hello Numismatty,

1. billion aspron trachy
Andronicus I. 1183-1185 mint Constantinopel
AV: Virgin standig on dias, hold infant Cristus
RV: Christus on right, crowns the emporer
Sear 1985, DOC 3b

2. billion aspron trachy
Manuel I. 1143 - 1180 mint Constantinopel
AV Virgin enthroned
RV Manuel wearing chlamys, holding globus surmounted by patriarchal cross
probably 2. indiction = 1143 - 1180
Sear 1964

3. billion aspron trachy
Manuel I. 1143 - 1180 mint Constantinopel
AV Christus on throne without back
RV: Manuel wearing Loros, Virgin bless the ruler
Sear 1966

The three coins are common.

Regards
Trub
