The other end curves in the opposite direction to the loop, but most of the remaining portion of the artefact has broken away at this point and is now missing. The outer side of the loop has moulded decoration, consis…

Object type: STEELYARD WEIGHT
Broad period: ROMAN
County: Rotherham
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A lead and iron probable steelyard weight of probable Roman date, AD 43 - 410. It is a narrow cone of lead, truncated at the top with a flat end from which the stud of an iron attachment loop projects. The other end is rounded, with a central conical depression. The sides are slightly faceted, and there is a deep gouge, probably post depositional damage, but still patinated, on one face. The weight has a light grey patina. It is 39mm long, 23mm in diameter and is 110g. This mass is roughly equal to one third of a Roman pound (libra), though the missing iron loop would also add mass.
