    Left - I cannot distinguish anything on the obverse but the reverse is a fallen horseman type. Many rulers from Constantinian dynasty issues these. You can read about this popular type of coins on this page, written by @dougsmit

    Right - a Gloria Exercitus type (another popular coin).
    Mint is Siscia (visible in the exergue of the reverse) but I cannot distinguish the obverse legend. The ruler could be Constantine I or Constantius II but the similarity in name doesn't help when the legend is not clear.
    You can download the Excel file for these coins from here
    There is a distinct category of Gloria Exercitus coins and perhaps with the coin in hand you can narrow it down.
