WEIGHT

Unique ID: YORYM-721EA8

Object type certainty: Certain
Workflow status: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation

Two (2) complete lead-alloy weights or gaming pieces of uncertain date. Both are conical with flat bases, on which they stand, with tapering sides to rounded tops. They are undecorated.

Dimensions:

  1. 11.6mm tall, 10.7mm diameter; weight: 6.3g.
  2. 8.8mm tall, 8.6mm diameter; weight: 3.7g.

Weights of a similar form have been identified from Early-Medieval contexts at Cottam, East Riding of Yorkshire. Due to the lack of secure context for the current example dating it and other examples of this general type is problematic, and their use is invariably uncertain. This function is also not certain and the object may have served another purpose.
