Perforated biconical lead, or lead alloy weight. Although the weight's surface is corroded, both sides are visibly decorated with either a chevron or diagonal criss-cross design. On one side the design is also punctuated by a number of bosses. As well as the central perforation, one side of the weight is perforated by a second circular vois which connects with the central perforation. It is uncertain whether this second perforation is a deliberate feature or casting flaw. Maximum diameter 24.5-25mm, height 15.5mm, diameter of central perforation 7-9mm, diameter of secondary perforation…

Perforated lead, or lead alloy, discoidal weight.. One side of the weight is decorated with a concentric circle and a series of radiating lines; the other side has been damaged, probably in antiquity, by two linear incisions. Diameter 33mm, maximum thickness 6mm, diameter of perforation 7mm, weight 43.0grams. Again, lead weights such as these are difficult to date and assign a specific function to. Excavated weights similar to this example date from the medieval period until the nineteenth century and a date at some point in this long range for this example is likely. Conventionally, p…

Crudely cast, freestanding lead, or lead alloy, discoidal weight. The upper side is inscribed with the letter "H" in a crude Roman capital; while the underside is inscribed with a linear design which may represent the letter "T" in a crude Roman capital. It is uncertain whether the letter forms are cast features or were incised after the weight was cast. Both sides of the weight have a raised rim. Diameter 34mm, maximum thickness 7mm, weight 46.1 grams. Lead weights such as these could have performed a variety of functions such as unofficial weights and measures used by traders and mer…
