@Bob L

those are some really good guesses

I am tempted to say that you are completely right about the second one and feel ashamed to not have spotted it myself, especially that if that's the coin, I have it in a better condition as well.

It does look like it's a biga and not just one horse AND it has that weird "star" in the top left corned that I couldn't wrap my head around.

Nicely done! Thank you a lot!

As for the first one, it is my wishful thinking that you are right :)

I had 3 options for it in mind and the Ptolemy VIII Euergetes II one is the one that the pessimist inside of me discarded it first

the others were

this one under Roman Occupation from Syracuse

and my original guess

something minted in Amphipolis as they have quite often portrayed eagles like that

Thank you! Really made my day
