Monobazus and Mozabus are simply variants of Bazeus. The real life person who assumed that name (and was the biological father of Izates) would have logically been different from the adoptive father Abgarus/Agbarus. But this is the puzzle we are trying to solve. Things are never what they at first appear to be in Josephus or the Gospel narratives. Those who have eyes to see have to work it out.
