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.

Cast lead or lead alloy 'steelyard' weight of probable Roman date (AD 100-400) or possible Medieval (1200-1500 ) date. The weight is circular in plan and conical in profile. A single perforated hole descends through the weight and is filled with iron corrosion. The external surface is very rough and abraded - there is no evidence of cast or applied decoration. The weight is a mid grey cream colour. A direct parallel for this weight has not been found. The weight measures 20.8mm width and is 19.1mm thick at the base, it rises to 42.3mm high, the top measures 12.5mm thick and 9.8mm wide…

An undatable (probably Roman to Post-Medieval, AD 1-1800) conical lead weight with a central piercing, standing 13.81mm in height and weighing 37.1g. The base is c.26mm in diameter (piercing 9.4mm diameter) with a concentric-ring groove around, the top c.11mm diameter (piercing 6mm diameter). Lead weights are difficult to date when found out of context as their form does not differ much through time.

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 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.

An incomplete lead alloy steelyard weight, probably of Roman date (AD 43-410). The weight is biconical with remnants of a large circular iron suspension loop shaft protruding from the top in the form of a two short, closely spaced iron projections.

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 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.
