There are a lot of beginner collectors of ancient coins that would like to learn what the different classifications of ancient coins. What I have seen with ancient coin collecting is that without proper guidance, the learning curve could be steep, before full enjoyment can be attained in the "king of hobbies". The goal of this video is to explain the different types of coins, and what they mean. You can see in my eBay store: http://stores.ebay.com/Authentic-Ancient-Greek-Roman-Coins that I have classifications such as Ancient Greek Coins, Celtic Coins & Proto-Money, Roman Republic Coins, Roman Imperial Coins, Roman Provincial Coins, Byzantine Coins, Medieval coins. May this guide answer many of your questions.
You may also want to see the Ancient Coin Collecting Guide & How To Videos which is a Youtube playlist of all my educational videos about ancient coins. Below each video is a link to a corresponding article, many times showing pictures and descriptions of the coins illustrated in the videos. So I recommend using that as a great guide to learn more about the different types.
