I have seen these letters written in a particular way and I would like to know their meaning. I don't know if they are in the correct position so I sent 2 possible positions.

  • Any context? I would usually imagine that some choice users would be quick to answer this type of question but it seems like some additional information may be needed first this time. – Mou某 Nov 18 '20 at 20:06

This answer is two months late; I hope you still need the information.

The position in your first image seems right. I still can't figure out what the first character is, but the second character is quite undoubtedly 妙 (Wiktionary) in a kind of seal script (篆书), though it looks a bit wonky.

Variation of character forms in seal scripts can be considerable, but I have an example for you - you can see it in the top right corner of this seal:

"妙吉羊菴" by San'geng Xu (徐三庚)

["妙吉羊菴" by San'geng Xu (徐三庚)]

The left halves of them aren't exactly the same (one more stroke in the image you provide), but I'm inclined to think that's due to a misinterpretation of one long stroke as two separate strokes.
