Antique French Saint Honorat Silver Medal
This rare antique French Saint Honorat silver medal is filled with ornate details. On the front is an ethereal image of St Honorat on the island of Lerins. He is depicted with a holy cross purging the serpents from the island. On the reverse is the Abbey of Lerins and a hallmark on the loop for silver purity.
It is said that following this miracle, many people became disciples of the hermit. Around 410, Saint Honorat built a monastery that would later adopt the rule of Saint Benedict (pilgrimage to the island quickly became coveted).
