Lead Weight. Cast conical or plano-convex weight with facetted or impressed sides which confer an irregular pyramidal aspect. Patinated overall, with brown staining, possibly part melted. A small dimple of diameter 3.6mm appears centrally in the base, with a smaller one of diameter 2.7mm off-centre on the top. This was one of two objects of comparable form to be reported from this location, and both were of similar mass (this example weighs 7.26gms, the other is 7.23gms). It may represent two drachmae, or one quarter of a Roman ounce (27.3gms); the Roman system of measurement was in…

Lead Weight. Cast conical weight with facetted or impressed sides which confer an irregular pyramidal aspect. Patinated overall. A tapering round hole of maximum diameter 4mm is set centrally in the base.

It may represent two drachmae, or one quarter of a Roman ounce (27.3gms); the Roman system of measurement was in turn influential upon measurement in the Early to Middle Anglo-Saxon period and later (Biggs and Withers 2…

A possible cast lead alloy weight of possibly Roman date (AD 43-410). The object is sub triangular in plan, with a trapezoidal projection from the centre of the wide end.

Lead Weight. Cast flat topped conical weight with foot ring and a tapered off-centre longitudinal aperture of diameter 3.8mm (base) to 2.3mm (top). Patinated overall.

Copper alloy Possible Steelyard Weight. Cast weight comprising a flat-bottomed bulbous base with foot ring, a tapered and lightly facetted stem and a robust apical hook.

A lead steelyard weight, probably dating from the Roman period. The damaged artefact is biconical, one side being slightly longer than the other. Protruding from either end is a pair of corroded iron spikes, representing the remains of the loop. The object measures 31.4mm long and up to 24.4mm wide. At 75.34g, it seems likely that this represents a three unciae weight, the full weight of the Roman quarter libra (pound) being 81.9g.

Lead Weight. Possible Steelyard Weight. Flat based cylindrical weight with central round aperture of diameter 6.7mm; the aperture is distorted to sub-triangular form on the flat base. This reporter has considered a similar object as a possible weight for a plumbata, or weighted dart, in which case the central hole would accommodate a short shaft and an iron arrowhead at its rounded end, with the further flighted extent of the shaft protruding from the flat end. Suggested date: Possibly Roman, 40-400. Diameter: 35.2mm, Height: 39.3mm, Weight: circa 285gms
