Help to identify Sasanian AE fire altar

(1/1)

I can’t fully identify this poor specimen.  Obviously, it’s a Sasanian AE fire altar.   
Obv.  The outline appears to be Shapur II?  Within circle of pellets. Rev. Fire altar with two stylized attendants?  Monogram left field. Within circle of pellets.
 17.2-19.0   3.4gr   12h
Any suggestions would be appreciated
Thanks

I would have been more inclined to say Piroz I, based on the crown shape. Shapur II has individual pillars and Piroz a solid shape. Below one two from my small Sasanian gallery.
