Triton's trumpets
Explicación:
A more or less literal translation is suitable here, because they are using this term to refer to sea snails of the genus Charonia, as the first sentence of the article shows:

"El uso de caracolas marinas del género Charonia para la producción de sonidos tanto en contextos rituales como en múltiples facetas de las sociedades del mundo antiguo está bien atestiguado por fuentes escritas y arqueológicas en numerosas zonas del Mediterráneo."
https://www.academia.edu/3244668/Trompas_de_Tritón_en_ambien...

The common name for these snails in English is Triton's trumpet, or Triton snail. The largest, Charonia tritonis, is called the Triton's trumpet or giant triton, and there is also Charonia variegata, known as the Atlantic or Caribbean Triton's trumpet. So it's an eminently suitable translation here, since the subject is the use of these shells to make sounds.

Triton Shell Horns in Phoenician and Punic Contexts from the Western Mediterranean
By Antonio M. Sáez Romero and José M. Gutiérrez López
The use of seashells of the genus Charonia as conch trumpets both in ritual contexts and in multiple aspects of the societies of the ancient world is well attested by archaeological and writ-ten sources in many areas of the Mediterranean.
