11th-century medallion found in stomach of baby shark

A baby shark caught in Malaysia was found to have an 11th-century medallion in it’s stomach after a housewife was filleting it for lunch.

It is believed to be a medallion worn by the Portuguese soldiers, presumably as a divine protection, during their conquests in this part of the world in the 16th century.

One side of the medallion is a profile of a woman’s head with a crown and encircled by a halo and an inscription that is unclear.

The other side is a crucifix with an engraved inscription that read ANTONII.
