    Sometimes better refrain from machine-translation.
    The book cited is
    Axel Winzer: Antike Portraitmünzen der Perser und Griechen aus vorhellenistischer Zeit.
    Unfortunately "Winzer" is also a profession: winegrower or winemaker ;)

    @Iepto is correct. I strongly suspect this Uncertain is from Mallos, but the only evidence I have is style. I haven't found any die links to any inscribed coinage.

    @Iepto and @Dwarf - thank you both for your help.

    I bought it from an obscure new auction house which obviously
    doesn't do much research compared to the two distinguished ones
    you quoted, but on the other hand it was much cheaper !
