Hi there. I'm new to ancient Greek coins and need help with these. I was told they were from Alexander's Empire but I can't find them in data bases I looked.

I don't have the weight... apologies. I'll try to take better pictures next time!

Thanks in advance for your assistance!

I think that the second is in fact a modern copy. Like this one on the Forvm fake reports.
