Ottoman Kilij in a Greek scabbard.

An Ottoman kilij (pala) in a Greek silver scabbard that dates between 1832-1862 in the reign of Otto.
Among the drawings stands out the portrait of an unknown Greek fighter during the revolution of 1821.
The translation of the Ottoman inscriptions would be very useful. I could not distinguish a date between them.

I am uploading some new photos, just in case they are clearer for translation.

One cartouche might say, "There is no god but God."

In another cartouche, perhaps, "Mashallah"

Side A

In the large cartouche, in two lines, a Turkish couplet

Olunca düşman-ı küffar nümayan
Yararım sinesini ya lutf-ı yezdan


“When the infidel enemy appears
I cleave his breast, O God’s Grace!”

In the oblong cartouche above it, in Arabic

ya allah

“O God!l”

SIDE B

In the oblong cartouche nearest the hilt, in Arabic

tawakkaltu ‘ala allah

“I put my trust in God”

In the roundel above it

sahibuhu muhammad bin khwaja hasan gürci

“Its owner Muhammad bin Khwaja Hasan Gürci (Mehmed bin Hoca Hasan Gürci)”

In the oblong cartouche above it

ma sha’a allah

“What God has willed”
