Hello, I'm trying to identify some of my coins and any idea is very welcome. Thank you for your help!

1. Diameter 17mm, Weight 3.4g
Sorry the quality is poor
maybe Apollo / Zeus standing right
i have found a similar at Olympia Elis but I am not sure, Apollo looks little different on my coin

2. Diameter 15mm, Weight 3.0g
Sorry the quality is poor as well
Think comes from Sicily, maybe Apollo / Horse

Micha,

Just a thought here. Perhaps Athena rather than Apollo for the first? Looks helmeted to me. Assuming Athena, there might be several possibilities such as Patrae/Patrai and others with right-facing "hurling" male figures for the reverse.

I believe you are right, its Athena, I see the end of the helmet at the back of the head, I will search it more
Thank you Bob!

Think the second could be a river god/bull combo?

I was searching earlier Gela because I have some coins with the river coin but with a horse couldn't end somewhere, as a bull it makes sense now!!
You are amazing Bob, thank you so much once again !!
