Buongiorno, 

chiedo il vostro aiuto per la corretta identificazione della seguente moneta di 17mm peso 4 grammi.

Da un lato una figura turrita, non leggo lettere.

Dall'altro una testa di leone con zampa. Sotto la zampa mi pare di leggere NIΔI

A parte la descrizione trovo simile il leone con le dracme di Knidos ma non sono riuscito a trovarla sulla rete.

Grazie a chiunque possa darmi una mano

Buonasera,

Come ipotizzato si tratta di Knidos:
