    The image at http://www.sandafayre.com/gallery/stamp_1093.htm has a
    couple interesting inscriptions on the left and the right. I don't know
    if the stuff on the right in the box is a script or not and I don't
    recognize the language of the box on the left.

    Other stamps at http://www.sandafayre.com/gallery/country_277_1.htm show
    the Arabic and Chinese scripts in use.
