County: Leicestershire

A complete lead and iron weight of possible Roman date.The lead weight is roughly hemispherical in shape. There is an iron loop at the apex of the curved side, through which an iron penannular loop remains. This has a gap with a lump of metal on either side, suggesting that it is part of the original design rather than a later break. It may be an unusually shaped steelyard weight or similar.

A Roman lead steelyard weight dating to the period AD43-410. The weight is biconical and there are marks at each of the pointed ends of the iron bar passing through that probably formed a hanging loop at one end. In the middle of the widest part of the weight is a hole with a sub-square brown mark round it - which may have been an alternative hanging mechanism.

Lead Steelyard Weight. Cast teardrop shaped weight with a central moulded aperture of diameter 3.3mm. The surface is lightly patinated overall, and the loss of the suspension loop may have occurred in antiquity, as there is no trace of rust staining; adventitious scratches are post-depositional damage. The mass falls just short of six unciae or one half of a Roman libra/pound, though the operation of a steelyard poise would not demand correspondence with any particular system of measurement. Suggested date: Roman, 43-410. Height: 37.4mm, Diameter: 29.4mm, Weight: 161.06gms.

A cast lead steelyard weight of Roman date. It has a globular body that is pear-shaped in form with rounded base that tapers towards the top. At the top of the object is what appears to be a circumferential seam, which might indicate the weight was modified or repaired at some stage during its life, since the two separate lead elements are of differing colour. At the top centre are the remains of a separately cast iron suspension loop that is mostly incomplete due to old breaks, and can just be seen projecting from one side of the weight. The entire object measures 30.51mm in length, …

Three Roman lead steelyard weights with embedded iron suspension loops: - biconical, open part of loop missing, diameter 42-5mm, height 41mm, weight 335g. - biconical, diameter 42-3mm, height without loop 40.5mm, weight 338g. - globular, open part of loop missing, diameter 40-2mm, height 39mm, weight 315g. All three weigh quite close to a Roman pound (libra) which = c.325g, though of course a steelyard weight does not need to conform to a weight system.
