A Roman - Post-Medieval (AD 1-1800) hemispherical lead weight or spindle whorl, with crude vertical grooves around the curved sides and a concentric groove encircling the piercing in the base. It stands 11.49mm in height and weighs 21.37g. The base measures 19.87mm in diameter. The central piercings measure 7.16mm (base) and 8.47mm (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 (Mar…

Object type: STEELYARD WEIGHT
Broad period: ROMAN
County: Lancashire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
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.

Lead and copper alloy probable Steelyard Weight. Cast conical weight with an embedded apical suspension loop of drawn copper alloy wire. Patinated overall. This would only be useful with a small steelyard rather than the larger fixed apparatus used for weighing bulk goods such as lead or wool. The object is assigned to the Roman period by the kind advice of Helen Geake. Suggested date: Roman, 43-410 Diameter (long axis): 21.4mm, Height (excluding loop): 16.5mm, Weight: 28.33gms.

A lead steelyard weight, probably dating to the Roman period (AD 43-410). The weight is biconical in form, although it is slightly irregular.

A cast lead alloy biconical steelyard weight, probably dating to the Roman period. The weight has flattened bottom with has a small section of corroded iron protruding from the top. A second iron section is visible at the top of the weight which is broken off at surface level. This would be all that remains of the original iron loop.The body is pitted with further evidence of iron staining. This weight measures 22.4mm long, including iron protusion. It is 21.5mm diameter and weighs 38.38 grams. Similar types of weights were used for a long period of time and are usually given a broad…

A complete lead bi-conical steelyard weight of probable Roman date. There are traces of iron at either end suggesting that an iron bar ran through the centre. A number of similar globular and biconical examples have already been recorded on the database from Suffolk, including: SF-F6662B, SF-F66CC2, SF-F6878E, SF-03C88C. Crummy (1983, 101, no.2510) illustrates an example from Colchester of similar construction, but slightly different shape. Length: 34.0mm, weight: 30.0mm, weight: 84.96g

Roman lead steelyard weight with the remains of an embedded iron suspension loop. The upper and central part is conical and the base convex. Height 28.5mm. Diameter 24mm. Weight 133.10g. This is just under 5 unciae (Roman ounces) which = c.135g. This is probably coincidental, as a steelyard weight has no need to conform to any one weight system. Mid 1st - 4th century. (field RG2)

A lead alloy steelyard weight, probably dating to the Roman Period (43-410 AD). The solid cast weight is biconical with an iron protrusion at one end, which was likely a loop which has broken in antiquity.

Lead and iron Weight. Cast discoid weight with a broad rim - of width 5mm and upstanding by up to 3.5mm - on its upper surface. Probably made in an open mould. Though the discoid form is best adapted to use with a balance, this object has a central embedded object of iron which is visible in both its upper and lower surfaces; there is no indication whether this continued to form a suspension loop for use with a steelyard. The upper surface also has a shallow V shaped notch and a deeper impression from a rectangular section point, both probably fortuitous. The mass of the object does n…

A large cast lead alloy weight dating from the Roman to the Post-Medieval period, (43-1700). The object is circular in plan. The upper face is stamped with the numerals IIII. On the upper face of the object is a slight raised rim with a circumferential groove. The lower surface is worn but undecorated. The object has a dark grey patina and weighs 425.6g. The colour of the lead in this example indicates that is it more likely to be of Post-Medieval date. It weighs 107.5g Lead weights are common throughout the Medieval and Post-Medieval period.

A lead biconical steelyard weight with one iron loop, probably dating to the Roman period (AD 43-410) although a later (Medieval or Post-Medieval) date cannot be ruled out. The loop extends from one apex and is complete. The steelyard weight measures 56.14mm in height, 49.08mm in max.width and diameter and weighs 470g (to the nearest 2g). 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. Many similar examples have been re…

A probably Roman lead steelyard weight with a corroded iron loop at one end. The lead weight is damaged, although the iron loop is visible at both ends of the weight and a complete loop is visible at the tip. The weight is broadly circular in plan and from a narrow point at the top, broadens toward the base where it curves in sharply.
