Both are good on J4. I would look to see how much damage your team has. If you have someone tankier (and with less damage) top like a malphite/shen, then I'd probably go the elder lizard. If you have a hypercarry top like jax/trynd, then you probably need to be tankier and I'd want the ancient golem.

Another thought, if this is a solo queue game, and you are just destroying the other team (think 3-0-3 10 mins into the game), then go damage (elder lizard) and continue snowballing. If you're behind, I would go golem since the enemy team will be fed and doing more damage.

That's my thought process. J4 does like Elder Lizard since his abilities apply the item passive burn. The Ancient Golem's tenacity is also great since you'll be diving into the enemy team and probably cc'd all day. Look at the situation you're in and pick accordingly since there isn't a good general answer.
