Record ID: NMS-81A2F4
Object type: WEIGHT
Broad period: ROMAN
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Possibly Roman weight, ceramic with a lead plug. The uneven shape is the result of loss of some of the outer parts through damage. It appears to have been cylindrical. The ceramic is off-white or very pale grey, quite fine, quite hard, with one tiny sliver of red ceramic (brick or tile) visible. At one end the plug exhibits the scars of two missing projections, probably a supension loop. No parallel noted. Diameter 28mm. Thickness or height 15.5mm. Plug diameter 11 - 12mm. Weight 24.27g. Perhaps mid 1st - 4th century.

Ceramic weight made from a piece of Roman greyware. The weight is roughly circular and has a drilled circular hole in the centre. The object is unusual in that it was discovered in a vegetable patch stuck to a piece of rubber cut to the same size as the weight, probably indicating that it was found in recent years and reused, then lost again.

Possible loomweight. No image available. Dr Kevin Leahy writes: It is most unlikely that this object is, as was described, a 'Loom weight' and it is best seen as being either a spindle whorl or a lead weight.

A worn and incomplete clay loom weight dating to the Roman or early-medieval periods. It would have been attached to threads on a loom to keep them hanging straight. The weight is of a dusty orange colour. On both faces there is a raised border around its slightly off-centre circular perforation. The loom weight has suffered substantial losses around its circumference as a result of old damage.
