Hello Nasif,

I believe the inscription is something like this:

Reverse (name side) (The mint and date appeared on this side)

ﺍﻟﺳﻟﻃﺎﻥﺍﻟﻣﻟﻙﺍﻟﻧﺎﺻﺭ
ﻧﺎﺻﺭﺍﻟﺪﻧﻳﺎﻭﺍﻟﺪﻳﻥﻣﺣﻣﺪ
ﺑﻥﺍﻟﻣﻟﻙﺍﻟﻣﻧﺻﻭﺭ
ﻗﻼﻭﻥ


(The Sultan The King The Helper
Helper of the World and the Faith Muhammad
Son of The king The conqueror
Qalaun)

Obverse (Kalima side)


ﻻﺍﻟﻪﺍﻻﺍﷲ
ﻣﺣﻣﺩﺭﺳﻭﻝﺍﷲ
ﺍﺭﺳﻟﻪﺑﺎﻟﻬﺩﺍﺉ

(There is no God but Allah
Muhammad is Messenger of Allah
Whom He (Allah) sent with guidance)



Yours is an interesting specimen. Although little of the Armenian host survives, it is rare to see well defined overstrike. My specimen shows more host than overstrike.

On you coin, on the obverse ( That is once the coin was overstruck) I see the following armenian " ... ՔՆ Ի Ս..." This would have been the reverse of the host Armenian coin and the full inscription would state "Struck in the city of Sis."

Regards,
Levon
