Smile  Hi Julian   I  would  like  to  thank  you  and  the  other  friends  who  helped  by  their  comments and  let  you  know  that  I did  look  up  ,loom  wieght,  and  found  a  few  of  the  pictures  very  much  like  the  object  I  have  . I had  never seen  one  before  and  without  your  help I would  never  find  out .  I  also found  out  that  some  nomadic  tribes used  to  move  north passing  through  the  aera  where  the rock  was  found . I  still  dont  know what  the  brown  half  circle is or  if  it  has  anything  to do  with  the  rest  but  anyway  my  thanks to  you  all     : take  care               Smile  shirdok

Looks like some kind of grinding stone or stone mace. Could be very old.
