    Since I don't know these types, what makes it so obvious?

    Oh, when you know Byzantine types you can definitely get a sense of what's fake. These ones are obvious fakes because of the crudeness of their style. They almost don't match any existing authentic types seen today. Hopefully no one mistakes them as some Arab-Byzantine types because they might minutely resemble that.
