I've moved this snail from the Reptiles category to the Other category for you. Snails and slugs are Mollusks which here on PN go in "Other.".

Thank you @bayucca. We eat them as well in Cyprus, "καράολοι" with "λαδόξυδο" ;)

Should be καράολοι, used in Saliggaria Stiffado Saganaki.
Sorry for these unusual links in a nature forum ;-)...
Very similar to the Roman Snail or Burgundy Snail, Helix pomatia:
I do not think it is this one due to the range and the stripes on the shell.
