Object type: STEELYARD WEIGHT
Broad period: ROMAN
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Probable Roman copper alloy steelyard weight. Cast, incomplete, hollow pear-shaped casing with two opposed, flattened sides and a collared opening at the apex. About half missing, with ancient, irregular breaks. If a weight, it would originally have been filled with lead, but no trace of a lead survives, even around the internal flashing. Height 57mm. Width (flat side to flat side) 45mm. For similar examples containg lead see NMS-503D97 and NMS-D60A95.

Object type: STEELYARD WEIGHT
Broad period: ROMAN
County: Hertfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A lead-alloy steelyard weight of probable Roman date. The solid-cast weight is roughly bi-conical, the upper half having slightly convex surfaces. The apex loop has been made from a bent piece of iron wire, the two ends of which have been pushed into the surface of the weight. Dimensions: 39.7mm long, 35.8mm wide. Weight: 232.12g, which is roughly equivalent to 8.5 Roman unciae (just under three quarters of a Roman libra).

A lead alloy weight. The weight is D-shaped in horizontal profile; one of the sides is flat and the other curves in an arc. The weight tapers vertically to an apex. There is an integral circular hole towards the top of the weight for attachment. As weights such as this one have been in common use since the Roman period, they can be difficult to date if not found within an archaeological context.

County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Lead and Iron Probable Steelyard Weight. Cast hemispherical lead weight of plano-convex form, with an iron shank protruding, presumably the stub of a suspension loop. Patinated and corroded. The weight is close to (slightly over) one averdepois ounce, which is a post-medieval measure with a Roman antecedent, but the operation of a steelyard poise did not require adherence to a set scale of values. Suggested date: Probably Roman, 40-400. Length: 29.3mm, Width: 22.1mm, Thickness: 11.0mm, Weight: 29.46gms.

Roman lead steelyard weight with remains of an embedded iron suspension loop, in rather abraded condition. Diameter 29.5 - 33mm. Height 31.5mm. Weight 130g. This is quite close to 5 Roman ounces (unciae), c.135.4g. However, there is no need for a steelyard weight to conform to a specific weight system. Mid 1st to 4th century.

Object type: STEELYARD WEIGHT
Broad period: ROMAN
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A cast lead steelyard weight of probable Roman date. It is biconical in form, tapering slightly towards the top and with some post-depositional damage to the sides. 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 39.55mm in length, 38.05mm in width/diameter, and weighs 204.10g. 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.
