A Roman copper alloy figurine depicting the head of a female, probably a weight dating AD43-410. This object comprises a three-dimensional head and neck of a female then just below the neck the object is conical with a hollow socket in the end. This open end is a rough, broken surface that is covered by the same mid/dark green patina that covers the rest of the surface. There is a slight rounded projection on the back just below the neck. The top of the head is worn and it is unclear whether there would have been an integral suspension loop or similar. The face of the figurine is…

A complete lead weight of uncertain date. The weight is conical with a sub-circular base, and irregular mouldings which taper to flattened apex. A central perforation is present on the base and continues through the length of the object to the apex. Weights were cast locally in lead from the Roman period onwards for a wide variety of uses and are hard to date precisely. Therefore, due to a lack of contextual evidence and any diagnostic features it is not possible to date this object any more closely. A Very similar example can be seen on the database: BUC-66190D. The weight is 18.…

Copper alloy weight. Cast discoid weight with an erotic scene depicted in relief on one side. This involves two naked figures: a young man to the left and another party of indeterminate gender to the right. The young man crouches with knees flexed as he thrusts a long rod with a slightly swollen mid part into the rear of the other figure, who is bent over with flexed knee to receive it in the hindquarters; the latter participant may be looking back towards its companion, perhaps contributing to a pointed appearance of the head. One arm, the left, is crooked behind the figure's back, p…

Roman lead steelyard weight, biconical with an incomplete embedded iron suspension loop. Diameter 26.5mm. Height excluding loop 36.5mm. Weight 102g. That this is close to c.108g or 4 Roman ounces (unciae) is probably coincidental, as there is no need for a steelyard weight to confrim to a specific weight system. Mid 1st - 4th century.

Lead steelyard weight fragment. Cast globular weight with a tapered central aperture of diameter 6.5-3.5mm. The surface is slashed and gouged and patinated overall; it appears likely that much of this surface damage was incurred in antiquity. Though there is provision for a suspension loop to be fitted, there is no trace of rust staining so if a loop was attached it was probably removed before the object was deposited, possibly incurring surface damage in the process. Some other gouges are of recent origin. Suggested date: Roman, 43-410. Diameter: 36mm, Height: 31.2mm, Weight: c.235gms.

A complete lead weight of uncertain date. It is circular in shape with rounded outer edges on both faces and is perforated with a circular hole in the centre. This hole appears slightly worn at one side suggesting that the object was suspended at some point. It could possibly have been used as a spindle whorl, but seems too irregularly shaped to have functioned correctly. It is worn and corroded. Because it lacks diagnostic features it could therefore easily date from the Roman to Modern period. Diameter: 25.02mm, thickness: 10.34mm, weight: 36.90g

Probably Roman lead steelyard weight with remains of an embedded iron suspension, pear-shaped with a collar at the top. The surface carries many V-sectioned gashes, none recent, along with an area of recent damage. Diameter 51mm. Height 56mm. Weight 663g. The proximity of this to 2 Roman pounds (libra), c.650g, is probably coincidental, because there is no need for a steelyard weight to conform to an exact unit.

Lead weight. Cast cylindrical or drum shaped object with flat ends of slightly unequal sizes with a slightly waisted body between them, resembling a cotton reel in its form. A pair of scratches may form a rough T on one end, though this may be adventitious damage. Patinated overall. Similar objects accompany Roman finds from various sites in northern Lincolnshire and the East Riding of Yorkshire, though the function of these objects remains uncertain. Suggested date: Roman, 43-410. Length: 35.6mm, Diameter: 38.1mm, Weight: c.350gms.
