Hi All,
Can you help me identify this medal/medallion? It is stamped Italy on the back. Google image search wasn’t helpful.

TIA!

Found two identical depictions- Spartacus/gladiator victory medal. Seems to have been a common medal given out at schools and such. Note the laurels he's holding- a symbol of victory in Ancient Rome.

That’s it! Thank you! I think the one I have is bronze, not silver. Still cool.
