Many of the coins have monograms, but I can't find the monogram under the horse on this AE22 (6.8 g) listed anywhere, which I thought might be able to narrow down the mint date. Also, it doesn't show up in any Punic alphabet that I've been able to find online.
Are there any web sites that go into this level of detail?
for your coin, struck in Sardinia in all probability, a standard reference would be Müller, p.96 n°198 or Forteleoni Serie II 99 or Cagliari 988-89
The punic letter is a shin

I think the only resource available online is the Muller's study "Numismatique de l'ancienne Afrique" in three volumes + a supplement. The coins of Carthage are in Volume 2. The book is old but it remained the reference for more than 100 years.
@Kavax. This is very helpful.
There are also 4 parts you can download at academia.edu:
It took me a moment to realize that I could click on Zuegitana on the map and gain access to information about coins of Carthage. Once I figured that out, I was able to find an example of my coins with several cross references. Thanks, @Justin Lee
You might want to click on Sardinia as well, cuz lots of Carthage coins were minted there as well.
