During the archaeological excavations at the site of Gora, in the Church of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, 426 graves were found and explored, only a few of which can be dated with certainty to the youngest, modern-period burial horizon. In grave 253, the grave from this horizon with the most finds, the body was accompanied by luxury devotional objects; a particularly beautiful and well-made object is a medal with the Virgin Mary and Child in a crescent on the obverse and Saint Florian on the reverse. This paper analyses these unique images and tries to answer the question about the origin of the medal from Gora.
