However, in a similar way to how Phocas had to deal with Mauricius even after he had been driven from power, Khusro found it necessary to deal with the renegade spahbed. The re-enthroned King of Kings achieved this either by an assassin’s blade or by exerting pressure to have the Turks deal with his rival. Khusro also faced some kind of revolt from his uncle Wistahm, who in the last years of the sixth century was minting coins in his own name in Media.
