Looks like a juvenile Agaronia gibbosa.

Thank you Dave !

Found out, it looks also similar to Agaronia nebulosa
      ( Compendium of seashells, page 196 )

Similar but not the same. It is a different shape, diferent spire, different banding and different aperture to A. nebulosa. Juvenile A. gibbosa are much more slender that adults as this one is. There is a photo in Sterba's 'Olividae, A Worldwide Collector's Guide' that is exactly like yours.
