Object type: WEIGHT
Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: Leeds
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
A lead alloy Anglo-Scandinavian weight with a styca mounted in it. The weight is roughly circular in plan and the reverse is domed. The front of the weight has a coin embedded in the centre. This coin measures 12.6mm in diameter and has the legend EDELHELM though some of the letters are retrograde or upside down.

Viking period lead weights were often set with Lunettes type silver pennies, Stycas and, on one occasion, a fourth century Roman copper alloy coin. The shape of the wei…
