Coin one is a Roman Republic denairus and the other is an Athena's tet with a scarab. I'm doubtful about that one IMO it's not a genuine example.

Ron, should that Denarius have a bottle cap edge?

not a bottle cap edge , but a cap edge of a bottle of champagne
it is a serrate denarius in bad condition , but can be identified by checking the serrate ones .
For the tetradrachme , Echizento is right IMO . To be sure , better photos are needed , also of the scarab (?).These coins have been imitated and the originals have circulated in Egypt ( scarab).albert

Ok yes Albert you are right, I was thinking that coins with serrated edges were issued by the Seleucids only but that is not true.
