WEIGHT

Unique ID: NMS-39B085

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

Copper alloy discoidal weight with convex sides. The weight has an even green patina with no formal discernable markings on either side. One side however, does have six nominally parallel lightly scored lines running across the face, probably done with a knife. The weight of 11.13g is not a discernable fraction of any standard unit of measure. The lack of diagnostic features means that only a wide date range can be assigned. Circa AD 500-1700.
