Broad period: ROMAN
County: North Lincolnshire

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.

Broad period: ROMAN
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.

Lead possible Weight. Object apparently made by coiling a square section strip of lead into a tight disc, possibly heated thereafter to fuse the adjacent surfaces. Patinated overall. The mass may suggest this to represent 2 drachmas (of 3.41gms) in the Roman system of measurement, though these units are thought to have continued in use in Anglo-Saxon times, with their derivatives in use later still. Suggested date: possibly Roman, 40-400. Diameter: 17.3mm, Thickness: 4.2mm, Weight: 6.80gms.

Lead and iron Steelyard Weight, as identified by the finder. Cast rectangular weught with the stubs of an iron suspension loop protruding top and bottom. Each side is slightly dished or indented so as to resemble the sides of a knuckle bone or astragulus, a form which inspired that of some ancient playing pieces. Patinated overall. As it now remains, the mass is equivalent to four Roman unciae (at 27.3gms per uncia), though use with a balance would need to take account of the unknown extent of the lost suspension loop. Used as a sliding steelyard poise, the object would not need to eq…

A complete lead weight of uncertain date. It is truncated-conical in form with a flattened tip and base. It is pierced with a wide circular hole. It has become slightly flattened over time. Weights of this type were in use for a long period of time and so are difficult to date precisely. Length: 17.1mm, diameter (at base): 21.9mm, weight: 29.62g

A lead weight of possible Roman date. The weight is long and sub-conical in form with a rounded tip and flat base. There is a circular hole in the base and slight traces of iron corrosion product at the top suggesting that an iron suspension wire may originally have run through it. Although weights like this were in use from the Roman to Post-Medieval period this may suggest a potential Roman date. The base is slightly bent out of shape. Length: 31.9mm, diameter (at base): 19.3mm, weight: 53.26g

A complete lead weight of probable Roman date. The weight is sub-ovate and crude in plan and section with two iron knops projecting from the edges of the upper surface. It is likely that an iron bar runs through the object. The weight is undecorated and pitted. The metal is a mid greyish-white colour and is worn. The weight is 30.9mm long, 23.3mm wide, 19.8mm thick and weighs 78g.

Lead Weight. Cast object, apparently made by the halving of a plano-convex discoid casting. A pair of intersecting knife cut marks on the curving upper surface next to the cut edge may represent earlier attempts to subdivide the original object. Lightly patinated. The mass falls just above the value of a Roman uncial or ounce; though this might equally represent a slightly underweight averdepois ounce of the later medieval or post-medieval period, a bun-shaped form is less common for weights ascribed to those periods. Suggested date: possibly Roman, 40-400. Diameter: 23.9mm, Thickn…

Roman hollow-cast, pear-shaped, round-sectioned copper alloy steelyard weight filled with lead within which the lower part of an iron suspension loop is embedded.

Lead and Iron Steelyard Weight. Cast conical weight with an iron suspension loop at the top. There are eight equidistantly spaced ribs moulded in relief, converging at the apex of the weight. Patinated overall. Though the object is equipped to serve as a suspended weight its flat base would permit use in a scale pan balance as well. The mass may suggest it could have represented an underweight four unciae or one quarter Roman libra if used in that way. Suggested date: Roman, 40-400. Length (of oval base): 33.6mm, Width: 29.0mm, Height: 31.3mm, Weight: 96.94gms.
