The bottom item is modern or early modern decoration.

The top item is odd. Can you post a side view.

Maybe city - Germonassa (dr. Greek Ἑρμώνασσα) is an ancient Greco-Sindian city on the Taman Peninsula [1], located on the territory of the current Hermonassa-Tmutarakan Archaeological Complex.

or Mongols?


The plot of the rot, Yin-Yang or spiraling kites (dragons) - judging by the texture of the body. It is possible that the Mongols of the times of Genghis Khan, who reached these places and even to the Crimea.

Are the three bars on the reverse actually loops that could have leather strap go through them?

I think it does need to be cleaned.  I suspect that those are flattened loops on the back through which a strap once went.
