It was only when  I spotted the eye that I saw the portrait facing left. There may be a remnant of a letter against the neck at 5 o'clock. The lower picture should be turned 90 clockwise. It shows the front part of a charging bull. I found no readable letters.

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

When you rotate the second picture a little you can see the 'man headed bull' so i would guess it,s from Naples   Neapolis  regards Derek
