I am far away being a specialist of your area, but I would start with the Buccinidae.

RE: Another Red Sea Shell
This is an immature Cymatium, but I'm having a hard time matching it to any species of that geographic area. Are you sure of the locality?

Thank you BajaBeach and Paul for your replies.
This was definitely found by me on the Red Sea coast in 1979.
