This is a coin of Yazdgard I. Looks like a B something, maybe BYS. The mint signature is to the left of the top of the fire altar.

Dear Howard, what about the letter to the right of the fire altar. What do you think about the Court Mint BBA? regards, arsia

Hello Arsia, I did see the letter and I think you are right.
