A lead weight, roughly circular and thick with straight sides, very slightly rounded on one face and flat on the other. The central aperture is neatly circular and has a diameter of 3.62mm at one end widening to 4.21mm at the other. The weight is a grey colour. Weight 59g, diameter c. 25mm, thickness 14.22mm. Close parallels on the PAS database include NARC-44E4B0, and the slightly smaller YORYM-3C17D4 and NARC-546555. Such weights are very difficult to date in the absence of an archaeological context, but are probably Roman at earliest and post-medieval at latest.
