I have these two ancient coins here and was wondering if anyone knew what kind they are. Both I believe were ina lot or uncleaned coins at one point. Thank you in advance.

    Biblical coin era on first one ? . It appears hand hammered image so the face was never perfect in middle . They used a 4 ft pole to strike the image . It appears to be a coin from time of Christ , I am not an expert but it does look like it . Always best to take to a dealer to hold and see as repro's of any coin are made . Maybe someone on here is a coin expert and can give positive ID . Can't see the other coin . Great old coins and again I am only making a guess on it not positive at all :-)

    #2 looks to be a well worn AE As of the Roman Republic c. 100 BC +/- , Obverse is head of Janus, Reverse is the prow of a ship. The photos are a little small, so can't tell you more.
