Greek or Roman Gold Coins?

I was offered these two gold coins by my usual seller. He said that these were found among the treasure trove of Aceh gold coins. He was not sure where these coins originated from but he said they looked Greek or Roman. I am not sure either but I did buy these two gold coins from him. I am hoping there may be someone out there who can identify these two coins.

Roman-- the letters are Latin

This is the style of a Venetian gold ducat. So neither Greek nor Roman :D
Unfortunately, I don't know enough about them to know whether it's actually Venetian (as opposed to an imitation made elsewhere), whether it's actually a ducat (as opposed to a different denomination), and when exactly it's from (other than "probably 14th to 18th century").

Thank you so much... I have been able to identify them now as Venetian gold ducats.

Hello Rohan

If you wish to know more about their value, and you are probably interested in a sale then contact me on indostocks@gmail.com

Also a question: From 1 October 2014, the Singapore Monetary authorities will stop issuing $10'000 notes. IS Brunei going to do the same?
