I'm sure none of the ancients I've come across are authentic.
Likely to be replicas or tourist souvenirs perhaps.
But I'd still like to know what they are supposed to be.
Greek, Roman, other?
Who or what is depicted?
This first coin (and it may not matter) is 5.1 grams and about 22 mm

Yeah, a stinker.

I think it may just be a nonsensical fantasy, although the reverse certainly depicts Asklepios seated, which is iconography from a number of different types. It may be attempting this Argolis issue:

I know nothing about ancients and only acquired coincidentally.
So because I have them I'd like to at least learn what I can about them for placement in the binder.
So thank you for the informative reply.
I realize that one piece per thread is preferred, but I'll just ask if the second coin should now be shown here or begin the next new topic?

Well, the general preference seems to be one-per-thread.
