Hi all, first time to the forum so apologies if this is not the right place to ask.

I believe these coins were picked up in Petra but not sure if they are of Jordanian origin or from elsewhere.

Help would be much appreciated, thanks in advance and sorry for the shoddy picture quality!

Ok after searching the forum a little more I can see the first is Aretas IV but any ideas re: the second coin? Thanks

I don't think coin 1 is Aretas IV...
Looks more like Malichus II with Shuqailat II.

Coin 2 maybe Constantius Gallus...
FEL TEMP REPARATIO reverse

I see the reverse now! Sadly the mintmark appears to be off flan, though in Petra we would probably expect Antioch mint. Not sure of the exact emperor either.
