Carthage Siculo 330-300 BCE AE 15 Palm Tree Pegasus SNG Cop 108
Here's a good site for coins of Magna Graecia and Carthage:
Click on Zeugitana on the map to get to the page of Carthaginian coins. From there you can find a similar coin and, perhaps more importantly, see the references they have. Many of those reference catalogs are older and public domain so you can find digitized versions online.
Is your coin really small, 12-15 mm-ish?

A similar coin from ACsearch:
Most have Pegasos flying left and are a little larger than the coin shown above. I have no idea if the direction of Pegasos or size is of any particular importance.
@TIF Thanks guys for your replies. I'm not certain of the weight at the moment, but I checked and it is small, 15mm. That definitely looks just like it, thanks so much
I understand -os is more from Greek. -us is more from Latin. Carthage would never use -us as they hated the Romans.
I agree completely. It's just if you are a beginning collector you would have no idea to use pegasos instead of pegasus in your searches. In acsearch it appears that either spelling brings about a close (but not exact) result.
