Medal: Bust of Gianbattista Orsini
Not on view
On the obverse is a portrait of Gianbattista Orsini. On
the reverse is a landscape with a unicorn dipping his
horn in a fountain, and a cartouche with the Orsini
arms hanging on a tree in the background. Orsini was
probably the son of Lorenzo Orsini. Still a boy, he was
made canon of the Lateran church in Rome and became
cardinal-deacon in 1483.
