A biconical lead with an iron pin through the centre. At the the top the pin divides into two arms to form a loop; the arms are broken shortly above the apex of the lead. The surface of the weight is undecorated. The weight is possibly from a Roman steelyard, though similar biconical weights are known from later periods.

Object type: STEELYARD WEIGHT
Broad period: ROMAN
County: Rotherham
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A steelyard weight of possible Roman date, about AD 43 - 410. It is a globular piece of lead with iron projecting at one end. The iron forms a broken suspension loop. Roman steelyard weights are usually biconical, but weights of other shapes may also be Roman, though the steelyard was also used in the Medieval and Post Medieval periods. The lead has a white patina and is pitted. It is 47.9mm diameter, 44.3mm tall and 463g. Allowing for corrosion having caused some loss of mass, and the incomplete suspension loop, this could be intended to be 1 and a half Roman libra (c.492g). However, …

Object type: STEELYARD WEIGHT
Broad period: ROMAN
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Lead biconical steelyard weight of probable Roman date (c. AD 43 - 410). It exhibits a central vertical perforation filled with iron corrosion with the stubs of a suspension loop projecting from either end. The form is usually considered as Roman, and the beam balance is thought to have been lost in Britain between the end of the Roman period and the later medieval period when it was reintroduced from the continent.

Roman bi-conical cast lead steelyard weight with rusted iron at the top and bottom ends indicating the original existence of suspension loops. One end is flattened at a slight angle, possibly indicating the loss of a small amount of lead. At the other end a pyramidal piece of iron protrudes c3mm from the lead. It is possible that an iron rod runs through the weight from end to end but this cannot be verified.The central ridge where the two conical ends meet is slightly rounded. There are no signs of decoration though there are several diagonal incisions on one of the cones; these are d…

An incomplete, cast lead artefact, possibly a steelyard weight of Roman date, AD 43 - 410. It is in the form of a truncated cone, rounded at one end and with a hollow depression in the base. Two stubs of ferrous wire project from the base, possibly the remains of an iron loop. These two sections of wire are also visible in the rounded upper surface, perhaps suggesting a second loop.
