Don't know if it's of any help but according to the "Dictionary of Greek coin inscriptions", with the N being the only (visible ?) letter of the legend, the following would be the probable cities from where it could come from (did a quick search on those and did not came up with any results...) :

Nacona, Siciliae
Naupactus, Aetoliae
Neapolis, Campaniae
Nesos, Lesbi
Scepsis, Troadis

Thank you, Minos, but nothing of these mint seen to correspond to my coin. I don't understand what is the symbol of obverse: a silphium? a tree?

No idea.  I don't understand what the reverse is either.  I doesn't look like silphium.  I think that's more like a stalk with braches off the sides.  Perhaps a tree.
