If anyone could help try to identify these coins, that would be great

I can't identify your coins precisely, but I hope I can helkp you find them.

Your coins are most likely pre-roman era from Greece or its colonies. The reverse of both coins is a tripod. Unfortunately, this is a very common depiction.

My first suggestion is to go to Vcoins (www.vcoins.com) and search on the word "tripod." You may fidbn one or both the coins there. If not, go to www.wildwinds.com and look up some of the areas that had similar coins that you found on the vcoins site.

Another way to go is to join the Yahoo group AncientPeddler (ancientpeddler@yahoogroups.com) and ask them for help. They are a very friendly group and will be happy to help.

Good luck,

Matt

I have a simillar coin : Antiochos (280-261 BC) Sardis (Lydia). Newell, WSM 258, 1409. SNG Spaer vgl. 351ff according to internet. Your may have different type but I think they're Antiochos I or II

I agree coin2 is most likely a Seleucid Kingdom - Antiochos.
