I'm in now way even a novice in ancients, but i will take a guess at it.

 

Looks sort of like a Muwahhids of Spain circa AD1160-1269 and a square dirham.

 

But it is only a guess on my part. Someone should be along that knows more.

Thank you! Does anybody else have opinion?

I have problem with identification of one Arabic coin (on right, square):

...

 

Does somebody know a bit more about it?

 

 

I lack in resources and knowledge to identify the #2 coin. However, I will put this forth for you. It is possible that #2 is not Arabic. I do not recall ever seeing either an Arabic or Turkish coin that was square, though I'm sure there probably is one. However, I do know that some Afghani coppers were square, and I'm sure there may have been some silver rupees that were also square.

 

In at least the 18th and 19th centuries, Afghani rupees would often carry persian or arabic script on both sides identifying the ruler under who it was minted. That's as far as my knowledge goes with possibilities for your #2 coin.

 

Good luck in further researching it!
