Complete lead and iron steelyard weight of Roman date (c. 43 - 410 AD). The weight is crudely formed from a roughly bi-conical lump of lead that has been cast around a folded iron pin to form a loop at one end. The two ends of the iron pin project from the other end. The iron is red-brown in colour and the lead is light grey. Both components are rough in texture. The weight is 27.98mm in length, 21.87mm in width and 46.34g in weight.
