Lead steelyard weight probably of Roman date The lead weight is of biconical form and has lost the iron suspension loop (with a surviving length of 42.5mm). The remains of iron wire are evident at the apex . The weight is of irregular, sub-circular section and is widest around its midsection (with a diameter of 40.3mm - 44.3mm). Although the surface is heavily-corroded, no ribbed decoration is discernible on the surface of the weight. The weight has few diagnostic features and weighs 408.9grams, which closely corresponds (at 99.9%) to 1ΒΌ libra (Roman pound) weight (equating to …

A copper alloy weight of probable Roman date, c. AD 43-410. The object is an irregular biconical shape in plan and circular in cross section. It is hollow and has an iron cylindrical core which appears to run through the center but which can only be seen at one end at the apex of the cone. This iron has an old break and appears to the the remains of an iron attachment fitting. The object is undecorated and the surface has not been treated. It is possible that this object is a Roman steelyard weight as it shares features with other examples on the database such as SF-9C8F61 and N…

Lead Weight. Cast tapering octagonal standing weight with a flat base with off-centre rectangular indentation and with an integrally cast lug with a square section aperture serving as a top loop. The latter feature would permit use of the object as a steelyard poise. The mass equates most closely to that of five Roman unciae, and less precisely with an underweight five averdepois ounces. Suggested date: probably Roman, 43-410. Diameter: 28.9mm, Height: 40.7mm, Weight: 136.55gms.

A complete lead weight of uncertain date. The weight is conical with a circular base which tapers to flattened apex. A central perforation is present on the apex though does not continue through to the base. No marks or decoration are present. The metal is a mid brownish-white colour and is worn. The weight is 23.7mm tall, 22.4mm tapering to 7.3mm in diameter and weighs 40.1g. Plain 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 …
