the Muwahhids, produced another oddity, a square dirham that lacked every type of identifying mark and bore nothing other than religious phrases (and just occasionally a mintname). These square coins became extremely popular and were copied by the neighboring Christians, the small Islamic state of Granada, and several states in Northern Africa including the Hafsids of Tunisia and the Marinids of Morocco.
