    Hello ladies and gentlemen,
    A friend asked me to help in identifying 2 provincials.
    Both have decent quality but I am stuck.

    This should be easy but I am scratching my head for more than an hour.
    The obverse should be Antoninus Pius.
    The reverse - first I thought it is a little similar to Aeneas carrying his father but could not find a match. Also had Antaeus in mind (but not the case)

    Second, I am also clueless

    Obverse reminds me of Hadrian but it appears the coin has no obverse legend.
    Reverse - ears of corn (?!). Also the dating would indicate Alexandria but again, I don't have a clear path.
    Any help is appreciated.

    Many thanks, @Bob L. You are very good.
    Not sure why I didn't spot the Hadrian from Alexandria.
    As for the 1st, the design was under my nose but I missed it.
