It looks like a modern fantasy coin to me.

but the strange is that we found some on the archives of a balearic museum, during more than 70 years it has been in a box

The legend side reads ΔΕΛΦΩΝ, means the object is from Delphoi,
probably a griffin's head right ?
The other side is in the style of the Ephesian Bee.

Modern as in not ancient. It might be a 70 year old fake or it might be a 5 year old fake. These things would be made for the tourist market.
