...but replacing Mohammed with the legend “Moses is the Messenger of God” on Khazar coins seems completely bizarre (5 such coins, dated 837/8


Which is why these coins are among the very few I suspect to be real.

I should also point out that the "Moses" being referred to here may not (yet) have been (or become) the Moses of the Biblical Exodus.

Genuine coins do not depict fake kings.

On the other hand, genuine coins may depict kings, misidentified.

Is a coin of Augustus depicting an Emperor? A God? A personification of Roman values? A Hero? Either would act as guarantor of value.

These Isis coins mostly contain the legend VOTA PVBLICA. Folks in the Roman Empire assembled on January 3rd to offer a collective vow to the emperor. Coins were hammered and made out of brass.
