Object type: STEELYARD WEIGHT
Broad period: ROMAN
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Lead possible Steelyard Weight. Cast [originally] triangular weight, made in an open mould with a former inserted to produce an aperture of diameter 3mm in the broader top side (as cast). This appears to have made provision for the insertion of a suspension loop, a usual feature of Roman steelyard weights. This object has been neatly truncated by an angled cut. As the object is patinated all over, this alteration took place in antiquity. Suggested date: possibly Roman, 43-410. Width: 41.6mm, Height: 26.6mm, Thickness: 15.4mm, Weight: 111.82gms.

Lead Weight. Cast plano-convex weight of crudely conical form with basal rim, probably made in an open mould, and with a central aperture tapering from diameter 3.6mm on the flat side to 2.2mm on the convex side. Patinated overall. The mass may suggest this to represent two Roman unciae of 27.3gms. Suggested date: Roman, 40-400. Diameter (long axis): 26.3mm, Height: 17.7mm, Weight: 52.99

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 both ends and with some post-depositional damage to the sides. At the top centre are the remains of a separately cast iron suspension loop, visible also at the base, most of which is now missing due to old breaks. The weight measures 28.28mm in length, 23.44mm in width/diameter, and weighs 56.67g. 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 cast lead alloy weight probably 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 VIII. On each face of the object is a slight raised rim which has been flattened inwards. The lower surface is scarred with several irregular indentations. The object has a mid-white patina. Lead weights are common throughout the Medieval and Post-Medieval period. Biggs, N. & Withers, P. (2000) note that weights of this type with numerals are consistent with the Roman weight-system as well as the averdepois syste…

A lead steelyard weight dating to the Roman period. The object is hemispherical with a flat base. There is iron corrosion present on the domed centre and probably would have formed the suspension loop. There are similar objects recorded on the PAS database, for example, see WMID-345F27.

County: Oxfordshire

A lead alloy weight of uncertain date. The weight is circular in plan with roughly rectangular cross section (having a flat top and base). There are no marks or evidence of suspension so it is likely that this is a pan weight. Although plain lead weights are hard to date it is probable that this weight is Roman, as the majority of the assemblage dates to this period.

Lead and iron steelyard weight. Cast sub-rectangular lead weight of tapering profile with part of an iron suspension hook or rim in the top.

Lead possible Weight. Sub-rectangular offcut fragment of cast lead sheet with indented sides; the form resembles that of a miniature cushion. The convex upper surface bears an impressed or rouletted motif shaped like a V. Patinated overall. The mass could indicate this to represent 2 Drachmae or one quarter of an Uncia, Roman units of measurement. Such a weight would be used with a small balance. Suggested date: possibly Roman, 40-400. Length: 16.7mm, Width: 14.4mm, Thickness: 5.3mm, Weight: 6.63gms.
