The details (from wikipedia)


Wazeba (early 4th century) was a King of the Kingdom of Aksum, centered in the highlands of modern Ethiopia and Eritrea. He succeeded Aphilas atop the throne. Wazeba is primarily known from the coins that he minted during his reign. He was the first Aksumite ruler to engrave the legends of his coins in Ge'ez, and the only King of Aksum to use that language on his gold currency.

S. C. Munro-Hay suggests, based on a number of recovered coins that use a die from Wazeba on the obverse and a die from Ousanas on the reverse, that these two kings may have been co-rulers.
