Dates are not always precisely known, but the Art Institute strives to present this information as consistently and legibly as possible. Dates may be represented as a range that spans decades, centuries, dynasties, or periods and may include qualifiers such as c. (circa) or BCE.
Inscribed on the medal:
Our cause is just! We are victorious!
The medal of a holy and just war!
To wear it is a great honor:
In it is a part of our motherland,
A reflection of our all-national glory.
