siege coin to id


i bought this hoping that it could be some siege coin (slim chance but worth taking)

it has a castle with three towers and AIR written at the center of it

the other side looks flat.

it could be made of lead

weight 12.3 grams

any ideas ?

I would say this is a lead bulla, formerly attached to some official document.

thanks !

it could definitely be

how can i find out more on the possible issuer?

I do not know much about lead seals. Maybe the castle-symbol and the letters A R could point to some king of Castille named Alfonso?
