A cast lead steelyard weight. The weight is biconical and crudely formed. Projecting from either point is a pair of iron prongs, representing the remains of an inserted loop. The object measures 37.5mm high and up to 38.5mm wide. At 234.78g, it probably represents three quarters of a Roman libra (pound), the remaining 11.08g having been provided by the now-missing loop.

Object type: STEELYARD WEIGHT
Broad period: ROMAN
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
A cast lead steelyard weight of probable Roman date. It is biconical in form, the upper and lower surfaces both having eight distinct facets. The remains of an incomplete oval-shaped iron suspension loop is visible at the top centre of the weight and also projects from the base of the weight. The weight measures 39.98mm in length, 28.85mm in width/diameter, and weighs 82.33g. This is a steelyard weight similar to other examples noted from Suffolk (e.g. SF-FCBC35). It is of probable Roman date, although a later date cannot be ruled out entirely.

A cast lead steelyard weight with an iron suspension loop. The weight is biconical in shape and measures 56.19 mm high, 42.52 mm wide. It weighs 376.4 grams. Lead weights can be difficult to date as their function did not change over many centuries, although based on the form and the inclusion of an iron suspension loop it is suggested that this example may be Roman in date. The iron loop is corroded and the weight has a cream to white patina.

A Roman copper-alloy steelyard weight in the form of an ugly, grotesque human head, probably a cruel caricature. The head is shown in three-dimension and shows remarkable facial detail. The head is that of an adult male. It is long and thin in plan and oval in cross-section. At the top of the head is a small loop for suspension. There are two pellets of copper-alloy on the forehead, presumably representing large boils or spots. A narrow ridge extends down from the boils to between the eyebrows. The right hand eyebrow is shows higher than the left, giving his face a somewhat out-of-pro…

County: Oxfordshire

A corroded lead weight with integral iron loop at one end of possible Roman date. The weight is in the form of an inverted cone with rounded end. The flat surface features the corroded remains of an iron loop which may have been used to suspend the weight from a steelyard. The surface of the object is heavily scratched an pitted as well as being corroded. A predominance of Roman material found in the vicinity strongly suggests a Roman date for this artefact.

Cast lead weight, pear shaped with a flat base, ring cast into its apex, this is made from a strip of iron, 4.0 x 1.5mm thick. One side is badly damaged with much loss of its surface. While it is not possible to be certain this object is best interpreted as a Roman steelyard weight.

A corroded and abraded cast lead object with a broken iron prong at one apex - a Roman steelyard weight. The object is broadly biconical in shape, as typical Roman steelyard weights were (Geake 2001, 67), with a broken iron loop at the apex for suspension. At 93.51g this steelyard weight does not readily fit Roman standards

Fragment of a cast lead alloy steelyard weight with a conical top and a broken base. It has an iron bar though the centre which projects from the top and would have originally formed a suspension loop. It is now 25.8mm wide, 23.2mm tall and 22.3mm across; it weighs 36 grams. Biconical steelyard weights with iron suspension loops are common in the Roman period and although this fragment is broken and only the top conical section remains it is probably Roman in date.
