Thank you

take your time

Expert:  Steven-R replied 1 year ago.
My apology, but I have been unable to pin down one of the coins, as it has traits of both Greek castings and Roman impressions--do you know where it was found (the upper one)?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

as much as I know it was found in southern west israel

may be came from egypt

Expert:  Steven-R replied 1 year ago.
Thank you...they are both clearly ancient, but unfortunately they may be regional coins as they do not show up in any of my Greek or Roman guides--I can advise the value is only nominal for any of the bronze types, but since I cannot positively state their origins, I will opt out in the hopes another expert on the site may better assist you.

I do apologize for not being able to find them, but there are still hundreds of type coins of this nature that little is known about.

As you can see, most do not retail for a large amount, however:
