May be used later as countermark on Ilkhan coins, in same area  ??? ???

I had the same central asian association, but could not pinpoint it. I find the idea of a bit deformed triskele quite brilliant !

A good theory, could well be a squashed triskele, I'll add that to the zeno post & see if anyone agrees  8)
