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

1. Diameter 16mm, Weight 3.8g
With countermark Serpent
looks like Herakles right on obverse,
on reverse maybe Athena or Nike Standing



2. Diameter 16X18mm, Weight 3.6g
With countermark grapes
on obverse I think is Apollo
on reverse is either Trophy or Cup

Micha;

Well congratulations are in order as the second coin is very rare with only three in coin archives according to CNG:

https://www.acsearch.info/search.html?id=6140824

MYSIA, Lampsakos. Circa 190-85 BC. Laureate head of Priapos right / Kantharos; Baldwin, Lampsakos, p. 74, fig. 17; SNG BN 1249-52; SNG von Aulock -. Rare, only three in CoinArchives.

(Actually I am seeing 4 in acsearch with the square handles like this one...)
