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. (squashed hole) Diameter 18.74mm, thickness 16.18mm, weight 29.02g

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.…

County: Hampshire

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.

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.

A Roman lead conical steelyard weight with the corroded stump of an embedded iron loop. It has four vertical ribs, and between each are two horizontal ribs, both with a pellet. 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.
