Hey guys! Here's my thoughts on these:

Left: Grapes on the reverse and maybe Diadumiand (spelling)

Right: Really no idea

Thanks!

I reckon the left hand coin is from Markianopolis...but I am notsure the bust is youthful enough to be Diadumenian. I am leaning towards the other emperors around that time, but without the obverse legend being readable, I'm not sure we can assign it firmly.

MAPKIANOΠOΛITΩN does work for the reverse legend. I suspect Elagabalus.

Possibly CEBHC AVΓ (of EVCEBHC AVΓ, with some letters ligate) on the obverse of the big guy. Perhaps a Thrace issue of Maximinus I?

Hey guys,

Cool, thanks for your help! I agree it looks more like Elagabalus with a grape bunch reverse from Markianopolis.

And I also think you're right about Maximinus I - The bridge of the nose (looks broken) seems to be pretty consistent. Thanks so much!
