CNG identified this coin as from Mytilene (based on the similarity to the bull's head on an early EL 1/12 stater - Bodenstedt E1.2). However, the coin seems to be the double unit of the ram head, identified by Konuk (SNG Kayhan 1051-2) as from Lycia uncertain. For now, both types are placed in Asia Minor Uncertain.
