Help With Mazaios Stater

I've had this Mazaios stater for some time and I cant seem to find a reference for it.  Before I catalog it as 'unpublished' I wanted to see if anyone knows of a reference for it.  The unusual part is the small facing lion head on the obverse in left field.  After sorting through thousands of auction lots and catalogs I only found one other example sold (I think this year), but it was so heavily worn I couldn't tell if it was a die link or not.image.thumb.jpeg.424c03c654e2b5eebc0f623c8fb3107c.jpeg

I checked the SNG France Cilicie CNG Levante as well as the Supplement to Levante and found nothing that matches your coin. I do not know if images are available on the BM ANS or other museum sites but you can try. I have a Stater or Disiglos of Mazaios as well.

Trying to be of help.

I found this coin, offered twice. Obverse seems to be the same die, reverse definitely different.

This is a big help!  Many thanks!  I saw the Savoca result, but did not see that it was sold once before.

That's one beautifully struck coin, with excellent surfaces!
