Medal commemorating the bombardment of Havre, 1694; reverse
Medal commemorating the bombardment of Havre, 1694. Obverse: Bust of King William III laureate, in a wig and mantle (right). Reverse: A brazen bull standing on a platform, flames below, Havre on fire and boats full of troops in the distance. The bull is a reference to Perillus of Agrigentum, who invented the torture of placing the victims of the tyrant of that city inside a heated brazen bull. He himself perished by the same means.
