A lead steelyard weight dating to the Roman period. The object is hemispherical with a flat base. There is iron corrosion present on the domed centre and probably would have formed the suspension loop. There are similar objects recorded on the PAS database, for example, see WMID-345F27.

County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A lead alloy weight of uncertain date. The weight is circular in plan with roughly rectangular cross section (having a flat top and base). There are no marks or evidence of suspension so it is likely that this is a pan weight. Although plain lead weights are hard to date it is probable that this weight is Roman, as the majority of the assemblage dates to this period.

Lead and iron steelyard weight. Cast sub-rectangular lead weight of tapering profile with part of an iron suspension hook or rim in the top.

Height: 40.9mm, Width: 27.4mm, Thickness: 12.1mm, Weight: 65.08gms.

An incomplete lead or lead alloy steelyard weight, of probable Roman dating (1st to 2nd Century AD). The weight is hemispherical (flat top, domed base) in shape. The remains of an iron suspension loop are running through the length of the weight. It measures 35.2 mm tall, with a maximum diameter of 42.7 mm. It weighs 395.3 g (13.94 oz). The weight is a light grey to off white colour, with an even surface patina. Similar biconical weights have been found associated with Roman steelyards, such as WMID-184456 and WMID-049777 and can be dated from 1st to 2nd Centuries AD. Howe…

A lead alloy steelyard weight probably dating from the Roman period (AD 43 - 410). It is biconical and has an iron suspension loop (broken) at the top. The iron projects right through the weight and out of the base. Weights of this form are usually considered to be Roman, but the steelyard was also used int he late Medieval and Post Medieval periods. The lead has a white patina. Compare HAMP-2D7A82.

Lead possible Weight. Sub-rectangular offcut fragment of cast lead sheet with indented sides; the form resembles that of a miniature cushion. The convex upper surface bears an impressed or rouletted motif shaped like a V. Patinated overall. The mass could indicate this to represent 2 Drachmae or one quarter of an Uncia, Roman units of measurement. Such a weight would be used with a small balance. Suggested date: possibly Roman, 40-400. Length: 16.7mm, Width: 14.4mm, Thickness: 5.3mm, Weight: 6.63gms.

A complete lead weight or plumb bob of uncertain date. It is ovoid in shape and pierced with a narrow circular hole through its centre. The surface is worn and corroded with much pitting and many sctraches. The lack of diagnostic features means that this object could date to any point from the Roman to Modern period. A very close parallel has been recorded on the PAS database from the Isle of Wight: IOW-BAD596. This is identified as a plumb bob (or measuring instrument), which seems like one plausible function if it was used with the pointed end facing downwards. Length: 45.0mm, di…

A complete lead weight of uncertain date. It is crudely hemispherical in shape with a small off-centre hole in the base that does not extend all the way through to the other side. Because the object lacks diagnostic features it could easily date from the Roman to Modern period. Diameter: 26.2mm, thickness: 26.5mm, weight: 69.45g

County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A cast lead steelyard weight of probable Roman date. It is conical in form with domed upper surface and flat base. At the top centre are the remains of a separately cast iron suspension loop, most of which is now missing due to old breaks. The weight measures 27.66mm in length, 36.07mm in width/diameter, and weighs 170.35g. This is a steelyard weight similar to other examples noted from Suffolk (e.g. SF-FCBC35). It is of probable Roman date, although a later date cannot be ruled out entirely.

Lead and copper alloy Weight. Cast plano-convex or domed weight with the stubs of an embedded copper alloy wire of diameter 0.8mm projecting from the top. A slight sagging of the base may suggest this was cast in an open mould. There are traces of an incised circumferential line around the base. Pitted and patinated overall. Suggested date: Roman 43-410. Diameter: 17.0mm, Height: 13.2mm, Weight: 19.30gms.

Lead Steelyard Weight. Cast cylindrical weight with domed top, probably cast in an open mould causing dimpling of its flat surface, and with a thin copper alloy wire of two strands projecting from top and bottom. Patinated overall. The mould was positioned at an angle to judge from the canted sides of the casting. The object is considered of possibly Roman date, following the kind advice of Helen Geake. Suggested date: Roman, 43-410 Diameter: 16.3mm, Height: 16.0mm, Weight: 23.79gms.

County: North Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A lead-alloy steelyard weight with iron suspension loop, probably dating from the Roman period. The solid-cast body is of circular section, and is ovoid. The apex loop, made of iron, is almost entirely missing. Its mass is 305g, which is a little less than a Roman pound (libra) at 328.9g. Allowing for the missing iron loop and surface damage, this could be a weight for 1 Roman pound. The surface of the weight is covered with dents and scratches, but most are patinated to a grey/cream colour. Compare BH-3FAAC1.
