From https://www.pycryptodome.org/en/latest/src/introduction.html:

PyCryptodome is a fork of PyCrypto.

From python-pycryptodome PKGBUILD:

  conflicts=('python-crypto')
  provides=('python-crypto')
  replaces=('python-crypto')

Unless there are good reasons to keep pycrypto, we should remove it.

Another candidate may be [pcr/pycrptocpp]. I haven't looked at it yet. The only thing I've checked is that the last commit was in 2017.
