Possibly Assos, Troas; Athena/Griffin, SNGvA 7587. Hard to be certain given the wear.

I wonder if instead of wear, the rough surface might be corrosion from seawater?

Thanks to all! Yes Bob, I think you're right, it must be from Assus (Troas) although it's difficult to say accurately the reference number.
