Reference:4767 Octavius Sforza Riario, c. 1498

Bust of Octavius to left, armoured and wearing cap. Equestrian figure of Octavius to right, a long sword in his right hand. Bronze. 72 mm.

Condition: Very fine, minor casting flaws, attractive medium-brown patina.

Notes: A clean and attractive early cast, seemingly not contemporary, with a weight of 157 grammes (the Kress example weighs 165 grammes). The medal appears to share some similarities with the Kress example.
