The anchor, bee, elephant, and eagle with thunderbolts in its talons were all royal symbols. Hellenistic kings liked displaying their own heads on their coins, often with a diadem. Invoking Alexander the Great was popular as well; the horse you're remaking is probably Alexander's horse Bucephales, the name means “ox-head”, hence the horns. Various gods and heroes were also frequently depicted, e.g.

A coin of Antiochos I Sōtēr (r. 281–261); head of Herakles wearing the skin of the Nemean Lion; and his bowcase-with-bow and famous club on the other side.

However, a word of caution. Imagery on coinage was royal propaganda. Extrapolating symbols from coins to shield patterns is not necessarily a good idea.

The few depictions we have of thureoi suggest much plainer designs. Here are two famous painted Hellenistic tombstones from Sidon, Lebanon, now in the İstanbul Archaeological Museum:

the thunders are difficult to made from a coin so I need probably another source.

There is one on the coin you posted earlier, above the Λ in the word ΒΑΣΙΛΕΩΣ:

Nonetheless, I'm not sure it's appropiate to use symbols on coins for shield patterns.

Is difficult have total accuracy and the portraits show same design.

Duuude, that green one  is one I made! Small internet amirite!? XD

 

More seriously, it does seem like a lot of period art depicting the thureos show it kinda plain with no designs. But remember that we just recently upgraded the Seleucids to having painted armor.  If that is accurate, and the Seleucids did paint their armor, who knows that they actually did with their shields?  Personally, I like having the Anchor and Eagle (for the Ptolemies) on the shield, because it gives a visual cue at a glance who these spearmen belong to.  Unless we can differentiate the outfits of both spearmen more drastically.

I'm screwing up the formatting ( I think I got it this time)
