Object type: STEELYARD WEIGHT
Broad period: ROMAN
County: Essex
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A cast lead steelyard weight of probable Roman date. It is biconical in form, tapering slightly towards the base and with some post-depositional damage to the sides. 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 43.25mm in length, 43.41mm in width/diameter, and weighs 348g. 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.

A incomplete cast lead alloy hanging steelyard weight of uncertain, but probable Roman date. The weight is biconical with a flat base and slightly truncated top. There is a hole running through it from bottom to top which appears to contain the remains of the iron suspension loop. There is damage and corrosion around the central hole. The overall dimensions of the weight are 31.9mm diameter, 25.1mm tall, and it weighs 110.74g. Plain weights were cast locally in lead from the Roman period onwards and are difficult to date precisely, although weights of this shape are common to the Roma…

An incomplete cast lead steelyard weight of Roman to Medieval weight (AD 43-1500). The weight is sub-ovate in profile with a retained stub of a suspension loop projecting from its top. Lead weights, due to being a functional artefact, change little in style over time and as such can be hard to date accurately. Similar examples can be found in Withers (2000). Similar examples can also be seen on the PAS Database: Unique ID: BERK-9EF9D1 and Unique ID: SWYOR-298FE4 The metal is a dark brownish green in colour Length: 24.86mm Width: 17.83mm Weight: 33.6g

A complete cast lead weight of Roman to Medieval date (AD 43-1500). The weight is cuboid in shape and contains no discernable decoration. Due to the long period during which such weights were used and the lack of differential diagnostic features during that period a broad date has to be applied to this object. The metal is a creamy white in colour. Length: 15.15mm Width: 12.67mm Thickness: 9.10mm Weight: 14.44g

A cast lead alloy steelyard weight of probable Roman date. It is spherical in form with a central iron rod that was probably once a suspension loop and which protrudes through the base of the object. The weight has a mass of 179g which is only a little over half a Roman pound (libra). This steelyard weight may date as early as the Roman period given its findspot, however the shape might indicate a later date range, possibly as late as the Post-Medieval period. Roman weights are usually biconical. Compare GLO-B54545 and SF-9D2F87.
