Naples, Sesino

I think this might be a Sesino from Naples - it's very similar to this one,
Kingdom of Naples - Sestino Louis XII of France (1501-1504) - Catawiki
But the legends I can't quite get to fit,
Obv,
POPVLI ° COMMODITAS

Reverse should be
LVDO° FRAN°REGNIQ NEAP °R
however this goes,
LVDONxxxxxxxxxNIQ NEAV +

Your coin is good, but it is a known variant. Normally, the legend starts with an eagle. On yours, it starts with a cross and what you read as an N is the eagle. The final R of the legend is missing to make place for the cross and the G is probably retrograde. This is Duplessy 720A.

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

Thanks very much.

I googled Duplessy 720A - you get just the one hit for a coin - back to this thread.... :)
