WEIGHT

Unique ID: NMS-EC83D6

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

Lead-alloy rimmed discoidal Medieval weight. The weight is cast, with a deep peripheral border set with an equal armed cross down in the centre of the base, thus forming a deep cup. There is small amount of damage to part of the rim otherwise the object is complete. Allowing for damage and corrosion the weight approximates to an ounce avoirdupois. A similar weight can be seen on this database ref. NMGW-5DED1E. Circa AD1350-1550.

Diameter 23.5, Rim height 8mm, weight 23.64g.
