It is an iranian civic copper of Isfahan (with ram or goat ?)
A good part of the mintname is still legible : "falus Isfahan" in persian

It's an iranian civic copper; these coins struck by cities never bear the ruler's name and are often undated; on yours, only "falu(s) Isfah(an) is visible.
ref : Mitchiner n°2191 with the description "Deer left with shrub".
Probably 1st half of 12th c. AH
