Object type: WEIGHT
Broad period: ROMAN
County: North Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete cast lead weight of probable Roman date. The weight is bi-conical and is extremely worn and undecorated. Plain weights were cast locally in lead from the Roman period onwards for a wide variety of uses and are hard to date precisely. However, it is likely that this example is Roman in date.

A cast lead weight dating from the Roman to the Post-Medieval period, (43-1700). The weight is conical shaped and is sub-circular in cross-section. The object has an irregular circular perforation through the centre of the weight. The perforation has an internal diameter of 3.42mm at the base of the object. The outer surface of the object has been decorated with deep grooves. The weight may have been used as a loom weight; however other uses for this weight are also possible. The object has a mid white patina and is in fair condition.

County: Devon

Roman to postmedieval lead alloy weight. The weight is disc shaped with a slight circular indentation at the top from which two iron prongs are visible. The two iron prongs are part of the attachment ring, now broken, from which the weight would hang. The base of the weight has a sub-circular indentation at the centre, probably an 'imprint' from the mould when the object was cast; no stamps or markings visible.

Lead and Iron Steelyard Weight. Cast sub-spherical weight with an apical iron loop in good condition, and with an indented base which would permit use as a standing weight. Patinated overall and lightly nicked; the more severe episodes presumably being recently influcted in plough soil. The good condition of the suspension loop, along with other ironwork reported with this object, may suggest its recent disturbance from a sealed or anaerobic context. The finder kindly weighed this object, reporting a mass of circa 1,500gms. This might equate to (an underweight) five Roman pounds or …

A lead alloy steelyard weight probably dating to the Roman period (c. AD 43-410). The weight consists of a conical lead alloy body with the remains of a separately cast iron suspension loop running vertically through the centre, now missing its loop. The weight is in very poor condition with a crumbling surface and a large degree of iron corrosion and staining on the lead alloy surface. It measures roughly 45 mm in diameter at base, 23 mm high and weighs 171 grams. Numerous examples have been recorded on the PAS database; cf: SF-FB8D63 and WILT-8442F7. Because lead weights are eas…

Roman to modern lead alloy weight. The weight has a flat, circular base. The item tapers to the top and flattens into a rectangular shape at the apex, where there is a hole for suspension. Lead weights are difficult to date due to their use throughout the ages.

Lead and Iron Steelyard Weight, possibly adapted to serve as a standing weight. Cast biconical weight with a blob of ferrous corrosion at its apex; the opposite end is flattened permitting the object to stand. The mass may suggest this weight represented 10 unciae. Suggested date: Roman, 40-400. Diameter: 37.6mm, Height: 46.4mm, Weight: circa 270gms

A cast lead steelyard weight of probable Roman date. It is conical in form with flat upper surface and domed base. At the top centre are the remains of a separately cast iron suspension loop, most of which is now missing due to old breaks. The weight measures 34.03mm in length, 41.03mm in width/diameter, and weighs 317g. This is a steelyard weight similar to other examples noted from Suffolk (e.g. SF-FCBC35). It is of probable Roman date, although a later date cannot be ruled out entirely.

A incomplete cast lead alloy hanging steelyard weight of uncertain, but probable Roman date. The weight is biconical with a flat base and slightly truncated top. There is a hole running through it from bottom to top which appears to contain the remains of the iron suspension loop. There is damage and corrosion around the central hole. The overall dimensions of the weight are 31.9mm diameter, 25.1mm tall, and it weighs 110.74g. Plain weights were cast locally in lead from the Roman period onwards and are difficult to date precisely, although weights of this shape are common to the Roma…
