This medal is dated to the 1440s on the basis of the artist's appearance. The authorship of the medal is debated, it is ascribed to an unknown Ferrarese follower of Pisanello by some scholars. The letters on the reverse side are the initial letters for the Cardinal Virtues: Faith, Hope, Charity, Justice, Prudence, Fortitude, and Temperance.
