Object type: STEELYARD WEIGHT
Broad period: ROMAN
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Lead and iron steelyard weight. Cast bi-conical weight with the stub of a ferrous metal suspension loop at its apex. Patinated overall. The mass may suggest this to have represented one half a Roman libra if used with a large balance, though the missing suspension loop might also be allowed for. Suggested date: Roman, 43-410 AD. Diameter (actually a long axis): 43.9mm, Height: 37.8mm, Weight: c.260gms.

Lead and iron steelyard weight. Cast biconical weight with ferrous corrosion at its apex marking the stub of an iron suspension loop. Patinated overall. The mass is close to one half of a Roman libra or the equivalent averdepois pound, though the function of the weight when used as a poise did not require it to match the units of a particular system of measurement. Suggested date: Roman, 43-410 AD. Diameter: 43.3mm, Height: 39.2mm, Weight: c.260gms.

Lead Steelyard Weight with stub of iron suspension loop. Cast conical or bell shaped weight with a dimple in the middle of its flat base, and either an incised V or a more extensive but indistinct set of radial lines. Patinated overall. This object was furnished with means of suspension, but its flat base would also permit it to be used with balancing scales. The mass may suggest that, for this latter use, a weight of one quarter libra (roughly equivalent to the averdepois pound) was intended. Suggested date: Roman, 40-400. Diameter: 30.1mm, Height: 28.5mm, Weight: 118.75gms.

Lead possible Weight. Cast disc, with a mass suggesting an intended weight of one eighth of a Roman uncial, roughly equivalent to a modern or averdepois ounce. Heavily patinated. Suggested date: Probably Roman, 40-400. Diameter: 19.6mm, Thickness: 1.6mm, Weight: 3.51gms.

Lead Weight. Cast discoid weight, for use with a balance. One side appears to have had a numerical legend stamped across it; this evidenced by a raised rectangular panel. The Roman numerals VI[--] seem to begin the legend, the rest of which is lost. The mass may suggest this to represent an underweight quarter of one uncia, roughly equivalent to the modern or averdepois ounce. Suggested date: Roman, 40-400. Diameter: 17.7mm, Thickness: 2.9mm, Weight: 6.41gms.

Object type: STEELYARD WEIGHT
Broad period: ROMAN
County: Hampshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A lead alloy steelyard weight, probably dating to the Roman period (AD 43-410). The weight is biconical with remains of a circular iron suspension loop shaft protruding from the top and bottom. The form is usually considered as Roman, and the beam balance is thought to have been lost in Britain between the end of the Roman period and the later medieval period when it was reintroduced from the continent. The steelyard weight measures 28.56mm high, 26.66mm in diameter and weighs 70 grams. Many similar examples have been recorded on the PAS database; for example, cf.: IOW-5D2D47 and SOM-5B2F75.

A complete cast lead weight of uncertain date (AD 43-1600). The weight is conical with a circular base which tapers to flattened apex. The worn projections of an integral suspension loop project from the apex. No marks or decoration is present. The metal is a mid cream in colour and is worn. There are several linear incisions across both surfaces which are most probably due to post depositional processes. 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 …

A Roman lead steelyard weight with an iron attachment loop in its apex. The weight is incomplete but appears to have originally been conical in shape with a flat top where the loop attaches. It weighs 35.07gm and measures 26.32mm maximum width (15.51mm minimum width/thickness) and 34.34mm in height. The loop measures 20.31mm in height and 12.60mm in width. The lead has become white in colour and the iron loop has evidence of corrosion.

A lead weight dating from the Roman period to the post medieval period (AD 43 to 1700). The object is conical and sub-circular in plan with a flat irregular base. There is a circular perforation through the object from the tip of the cone through the base. The outer surface of the object has been decorated with cast lines to create a chevron effect. There are similar examples on the PAS database including WAW-01A9D3 and LVPL-5F60E1.

Copper alloy probable Weight. Solid cast ovoid object, tapering to a point at one end and broken, possibly close to a slight expansion or perforation, at the other. Where undamaged, the object is lightly facetted, with chatter marks along them which may suggest trimming with a knife. The opposite side is grooved, probably as adventitious damage. This object may have served with a small steelyard, or possibly as a plumb bob; both uses would have entailed provision for suspension at the broken end. The mass is close to one half ounce in either the Roman or modern metrical systems. Sugge…
