Hi, this is a game top.  Maybe related to Put and Take.  There are 8 sides to the small (about 1.2 inches) brass top.

The picture is at:

Thank you.  If I get an answer, I'll mail you an English brass Put and Take top.  (This one is rare; is not mine.) (I am pretty sure now that it is in Persian, not Arabic.)

Hi, I made the original post.  Maybe this will help.  If it is a Put & Take, as I strongly suspect, the six sides in English might be something like this:
 Put 1, win 1, lose I , take one, give two, grab two, one in, two out,
 all pay, all in, grab all, lose spin, pool, take pool..  

This is my Put & Take collection page:

Thanks
