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 …

Roman to Medieval cast lead alloy, or lead, perforated circular weight or spindle whorl, biconical with traces of a decorative pattern comprised of lines. The weight has a circular perforation through the centre. In the "Finds Recording Guide", Geake (2001, p66) points out that: "The function of lead weights would have varied, from spindle-whorls to fishing weights to trade weights." She adds that spindle whorls should ideally be circular and must have a central perforation (ibid.). It is possible, therefore, that this lead weight is a spindle whorl. At the Austin Friary in Leicest…

A Roman - Post-Medieval (AD 1-1800) hemispherical lead weight or spindle whorl. It stands 6.31mm in height and weighs 22.55g. The base measures 26.60mm in diameter. The central piercing is slightly off-centre and measures 8.11mm (base) and 7.75mm (apex) in diameter. Margeson suggests that the weight of a spindle whorl is suggestive of the thickness of yarn produced, with lighter spindle whorls (3 - 5 grams) being used for spinning cotton and the heavier ones (30 - 35 grams) for spinning wool (Margeson 1993, 184).

A lead steelyard weight, probably dating to the Roman period (AD 43-410). The weight is biconical in form. Both the top and bottom of the weight show signs of iron corrosion where a suspension loop would have been attached with an iron bar through the centre. The surface is now a light grey/brown colour with numerous scratches and dents including a large rectangular depression. Many similar examples have been found on the PAS database; for example NMS-1815C6, SWYOR-B85A02 and KENT-DC6FC3. The length is 45mm and the width is 30mm.
