Roman object; cast copper alloy object of uncertain function but probable Roman date. The object is a spiral of copper alloy, forming three ridges with a decorative knop at the top corner. The knop appears to have originally been quatripartite but one of the lobes is now missing. The object has a D-shaped hole through the centre, which is now blocked with a powdery pale green substance, possibly the remains of a paste or a large build-up of copper corrosion product. The function of this object is unclear and no close parallels have come to light. However, the patina of the copper allo…

Weight; cast lead suspension weight of uncertain date. The weight is a long, tapering circular cone of lead, with a slight curve to its profile. The circular end is slightly concave and there are traces of iron in the centre of this end, suggesting that it originally had an iron suspension loop embedded in the lead. This indicates that it may have been used as a plumb bob or to weigh down a line or similar. The object is of very simple manufacture and as such it is difficult to make any accurate suggestion about its date of use. Diameter 33.30mm, length 105.58mm, weight 456.4g

Lead weights; group of three cast lead beads of uncertain date or function (possible Roman). The beads are roughly spherical but flattened on top and bottom. They are all pierced through the flattened axis by a small, circular hole. They may well be weights, such as net weights, although this function is not certain. Likewise the dating of these finds is problematic. 1. (palest) Diameter 18.66mm, thickness 15.19mm, weight 27.05g 2. Diameter 19.60mm, thickness 15.82mm, weight 29.81g 3.

A Roman to Post Medieval cast lead alloy standing weight. It is conical with a flat base and truncated top. There is a circular shaped hole running through it from bottom (7.5mm hole diameter) to top (6.3mm hole diameter). The overall dimensions of the weight are 23.1mm diameter, 15.0mm tall, and it weighs 31.96g. Plain weights were cast locally in lead from the Roman period onwards and are difficult to date precisely, although most are late Medieval to Post Medieval in date.

A cast lead steelyard weight of probable Roman date. It is roughly biconical in form. There are remains of an iron suspension loop embedded in the centre of the top of the object and it is demarcated by reddish brown corrosion. The weight shows signs of wear and damage; there are a number of gouges through the patina. It has a creamy light brown and white patina. The weight is if of probable Roman date, although a later date is also possible. At 332g, the weight is only a little heavier than a Roman pound (libre). Compare to PAS record ID: SF-E4B937. Thickness: 37.9mm; Diameter: 45.…

A corroded cast lead object - possibly a 'homemade' Roman weight. The object is broadly teardrop shaped with a rounded end. It tapers towards the other end which features a crude transverse groove, possibly for suspension. One surface is domed while the other is flat; the object has a semicircular cross-section. The surface is now a light-grey/white colour with numerous scratches and dents. This object's current mass bears no clear relationship to the Roman weight-system, but was found in the vicinity of Roman steelyard weights.

A corroded and abraded cast lead object - probably a Roman steelyard weight. The object is broadly circular in plan with a large, corroded iron loop (L.: 23.3mm) off centre on its upper surface. The weight tapers to a broadly oval base (33.2 by 25.7mm); the sides taper to the short ends, while the long sides have been squashed. The base is flat enough for the weight to stand. The surface is now a light-grey/white colour with numerous scratches, dents and areas of cracking. Given its current mass it is unclear how this weight fits into the Roman weight-system.

A corroded and abraded cast lead object - possibly a Roman steelyard weight. The object is broadly biconical in shape, as typical Roman steelyard weights were (Geake 2001, 67), although it is domed at the base and seems to lack the usual iron loops for suspension. The surface is now a light-grey/white colour with numerous scratches, dents and two significant losses to the conical half. This object now weighs slightly under eleven Roman unciae.
