So, you want to match any tokens of the following structure:

protected DIGIT : '0'..'9' ;

THING_ID: "Thing" ( DIGIT )+ ;

And where is the problem? Do you want to qualify Thing456 as ID instead of THING_ID
if Thing456 was not defined? You can check for it in code:

: "Thing" ( DIGIT )+ 
  { if( !isDefined( $getText ) ) $setType( ID ); }
