The reverse of the medal shows an allegory of a youth reclining by the flowing waters of the Cam whilst the figure of Death holds up the hour glass from behind a pollarded tree. In it’s pictorial allusion the allegory represented Graham’s life. The latin inscription from Petrach reads ” So Here You Can Enjoy “.
