The top coin maybe this:

 

Apamea, ca. 1st cent. B.C.

Obv: Turreted head of Tyche facing right, dotted border.

Rev: Nike advancing holding filleted wreath, ΑΠΑΜΕΩΝ THΣ EIPAΣ KAI AΣYΛOY, AN in far left field,

Seleukid era date to left of Nike.

 

The second one this or very similar:

 

Syria, Cyrrhestica, Cyrrhus, Marcus Aurelius, AD 161-180
AE 23 mm,
obv. AVTO KM AVRH]- ANTWNINOC CEB
Bust, laureate, r.
rev. DIOC KATEBATOV - KVRRHCTWN
Zeus Kataibates, in himation, std l. on rocks, resting r. arm on knee, holding
thunderbolt in r. hand and leaning with l. hand on sceptre; l. before him eagle
r.
SNG UK 1301, 660

Kataibates = descending (in lightning and thunder); epikleisis of Zeus as thunder-god, to whom places struck by thunder (lat. putealis) were sacrified.
