Writing on the back of a beautiful detailed painting I inherited, looks like an old page from a book.

Writing on the back of the painting

The painting

I had posted this in the Chinese language forum because of the writing on the back
But the more I look at the painting, the more it looks perhaps Mongolian or even Persian or Arabic...

Thank you so much, any help would be appreciated!

Омар Хайям - Omar Khayyam in Russian.

Signage either misspelt (Umar Khayyom) or written in a C. Asian language that used/still uses the Russian alphabet.

Umar Xayyom - Uzbek?

Wow, fantastic, thank you!

I'm not even sure where this came from originally or if it's antique or newer.
