Object type: STEELYARD WEIGHT
Broad period: ROMAN
County: Hampshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
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.

A corroded and abraded cast lead object with vestigial iron pronged remains at both apexes - a Roman steelyard weight. The object is broadly biconical in shape, as typical Roman steelyard weights were (Geake 2001, 67), with iron loops for suspension. The surface is now a light-grey/white colour with numerous scratches and dents. This object now weighs slightly over half a Roman pound.

A corroded and abraded cast lead object with broken iron pronged remains at both apexes - a small Roman steelyard weight. The object is biconical in shape, as typical Roman steelyard weights were (Geake 2001, 67), with iron loops for suspension. The surface is now white with numerous superficial scratches and dents. Given its current mass it is unclear how this weight fits into the Roman weight-system.

Broad period: ROMAN
County: Staffordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
An incomplete lead alloy steelyard weight, of probable Roman dating (1st to 4th Centuries AD onwards). The steelyard weight is sub conical in profile and circular in plan. It exhibits an incomplete iron suspension loop at the top of the weight. The base is rounded. It measures 40.57mm wide and is 43.16mm tall. It weighs 285.2 grams. Steelyard weights of this style are considered to be probably Roman in date, but due to it being a functional type of artefact, shapes of steelyard weights tend to be similar through until the Post Medieval period.

Its height without the loop is 26mm. Diameter 29mm. Weight 108g. 4 Roman unciae (= 108g), although there is no necessity for a steelyard weight to match any one weight system.

Roman bi-conical cast lead steelyard weight with copper alloy loops at the bottom and top, one containing an S-shaped chain link. The central lead weight is corroded with only part of the surface remaining. The loops are formed from lengths of rectangular sectioned copper alloy wire. It is not clear if the upper and lower loops are formed of one piece of wire that runs completely though the weight, or seperate pieces embedded in each end. Both loops are very worn in the middle. The chain link is formed of a piece of wire bent into an S shape with straight ends and one end hooked thoru…

An egg shaped lead weight with the remains of an iron loop just visible within the depression at the top of the weight. Weight is approximately 175g (6oz), height 39.44mm, maximum diameter 33.45mm. The date of this weight is uncertain and could range from Roman to Post-Medieval (AD43-1700) however it is likely to be Roman due to associated finds.

Lead steelyard weight, probably of Roman date The weight is of biconical form (with a maximum diameter of 35.1mm and a length of 32.4mm) and is incomplete, missing part of one side (with a surviving weight of 77.4g). The weight was suspended by an iron loop, which is now lost but the iron remnants are discernible at both ends. The surface is damaged and eroded with no decoration now evident. If the weight is of Roman date it may originally weighed one third of a Roman pound (libra), weighing 109.15g.

An incomplete cast lead weight or steel yard weight. The weight is sub-circular in plan. The top half is conical with the remains of an iron stud projecting from its apex, the bottom half is a shallow dome and there is a prononced lip where the two halves join. It is possible that the weight was suspended by this iron stud which is incomplete. The weight is a white to cream colour with a relatively even, but slightly corroded and abraded, patina that covers all surfaces. The small size and the conical nature suggest it was to be used with a steelyard and therefore be Roman in dat…

A complete circular biconical cast lead-alloy weight, probaby a spindle whorl dating from the Roman period judging by the form and grey patina, i.e. AD72-410. The lead weight is biconical in cross-section with a rounded base and top. It is decorated with a simple pattern of a rough chevrons. The weight is 28mm in diameter and weighs 23.5g. Lead weights like these are common finds, but only rarely from excavated contexts which is why date and origin are difficult to pinpoint. Decorated lead-alloy weights are very rare finds in excavations, but are often found by metal detectorists. T…
