What is the two signs: branch and strange figure close to the branch?

Hi again
the branch look like  palm tree which was used as a symbol for Gaza and the letter between the branch and the owl is  :phoenician_ayin_2:  which is the first letter of Gaza in Aramaic.
your coin in good shape for Gaza (Philisto Arab) mint, and I am kind of sure that the coin wroth good amount of money  :afro:
