From where is this pre-philatelic postmark?


Hello
On this cover I cannot read the postmarks on the reverse. Have not found it in the Dobin book. It reads like Stelansagatch.
Can anybody please help me.
Thanks a lot in advance,
Thomas Berger

The postmark reads: st elanzagach tavr gub 12 maya 1868 god. Elan-Zagach was a postal station in Tauride province (between Melitopol and Genichesk) handling all types of mail. It opened in April 1867 and received a triangular dotted postmark with number around 925, which for some reason was not used to cancel the stamps on this cover.
