Unknown tooth

Hello,

I found this tooth a while ago. I assume it's from some kind of herbivore, but I am not sure.

From the Miocene of Ruwais, Abu Dhabi, UAE20200828_163707.thumb.jpg.1ed155ba2b8a5131c7ab3307151d4594.jpg20200828_163632.thumb.jpg.f96e1db972eedcb4f5ae1a27b0fb5716.jpg

One of two possibilities, it is a cervid(deer) lower p4 or possibly a lower p3 or it is one of the many genera of small  antelopes.  I would have to check with my collection of fossil teeth from the chines Pliocene to be more precise as to which group your specimen belongs to.

It does look very similar! Thank you.
