I would look especially among the Quartings of Sigismund. There are a lot of different types.
But look here at the forked cross, the lettering between the arms, the crown on the reverse.
I'd say, you're almost home ...

On the coin presented here Herakles clearly is wearing a lionskin headdress, so this variant fits perhaps better:

Nice Larissa drachm, though I'm now curious how the reverse texture came to be.  It looks like woven fabric, which makes me wonder if it was burried against a piece of fabric that absorbed soil acidity enough to leave its imprint on the fabric of the coin?  Interesting nevertheless.

Greetings Coin Friends,

My four month lull of adding to my collection has come to an end. I obtained this wonderful coin a while ago and am finally getting around to posting it. Taking a break from my Larissian fractionals, this is a drachm not of the ¾ facing type but of the profile type. The first time I’m bringing this type into my collection. I was delighted to obtain it, as I believe it to be what is referred to in BCD Thessaly I as the “prototype issue” which “...harks back to the work of Euainetos of Syracuse.”

Enjoy: https://www.forumancientcoins.com/gallery/displayimage.php?pid=174233

The first two coins in the original post have the same flan - undoubtedly either casts, or the same coin with different patina applied.
