The lucky finder wrote us an email where he says:

"It is a power symbol of Persian Empires in old time. There was a broker in near us he said it is about 2000 years old. And offer to buy it for about 800000$ but I think it may be more worth than that. Also some information is written under it. But I don't know which alphabet is used. You can zoom on photo and see it."
