I have only the Uzbekistan part of Sylloge Nummorum Sasanidarum, but checked it anyway. The coins can be roughly distinguished by the shape of the hat/crown/hairdo of the ruler. Your coin shows a shape I found most often for Peroz (457-484 AD). However, the coins in SNS/Uzbekistan do not have the three markings on the edge, so handle this info with care.

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

Thank you. However, I think it's Khusro II. The crown points in that direction. Also, the date seems like Year 25 of his reign (top left margin next to the attendant).
