Question Anybody know what this is?

I got this coin hoping to find out what it was, but im having a bit more trouble than i anticipated. its copper, pretty well worn and i think it has aramaic or hebrew on the side, i can make out ושבוע but nothing else. the guy kneeling is cool and when i took an etching it looks like he has a beard and a turban so i'm definitely leaning towards the middle east. any ideas would be greatly appreciated, thanks. i attached the photo for you to see, its kinda blurry but hopefully not too bad.
