    100826 | ITALY. Papal States. Pope Alexander VII bronze Medal. Dated regnal year I (1655), though a 19th-century striking (30mm, 12.35 g, 12h). After G. Morone.

     

    ALEXAN • VII • PONT • MAX • A • I, bust of Alexander right, wearing camauro and stole / VIVO EGO IAM NON EGO (I live [the life of Christ], and yet I do not live [my own]..., –adapted from Galatians 2:20), bust of Christ left. Edge: A few light marks, otherwise plain.

     

    Cf. Lincoln 1162. Choice Mint State. Alluring red-brown surfaces, with some pleasing luster.

     

    The reverse legend refers to a passage in Galatians, whereby Paul states that he was not living the life of himself, but rather that of the Beloved [Christ].
