For the first one, I think you've got the legend upside-down. It's definitely not the AΔAIOY of Adaios. I can see what might be the ΣΙΛΕ of ΒΑΣΙΛΕΩΣ, and to the left of the tripod I think I can see a line ending in X-Y, so presumably ΑΝΤΙΟΧΟΥ. Monogram at left. Perhaps Antiochos II Theos?

I would guess Augustus for the oxen-reverse coin. Determining the mint could be a challenge - I believe there are several possibilities.

This is what I think I may be seeing. The red letters are sort of readable - maybe. But my old eyes could be playing tricks on me.
