Akbar, AE square Falus of Malwa type

I was going to ask what is the meaning of the squiggle of calligraphy on the Obv, however I spotted the same word on a thread of Overlords here :- http://www.worldofcoins.eu/forum/index.php/topic,5207.msg32193.html#msg32193  & discovered the word is a fanciful way of writing Akbar

But I can't see similarities to Overlords coin on the rev
