The badly damaged remains of a lead steelyard weight. Probably Roman. The weight is of bi-conical form and a trace of an iron suspension loop is just visible at one end. A large gouge has opened the weight up along one side revealing iron corrosion inside suggesting the iron loop wires went right through the weight.

County: West Berkshire

A cast lead steelyard weight, probably dating to the Roman period (AD 43-410). The weight is bi-conical with remains of a large circular iron suspension loop shaft protruding from the top and more rounded on the lower half below the central thickened rib. 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 30.7 mm high (excl loop), 31.4 mm in diameter and weighs 128.1g. Several other similar examp…

A lead-alloy steelyard weight with iron suspension loop, probably dating from the Roman period. The lower portion of the solid-cast body is of circular section, the straight sides extending upwards from a flat base.

The apex loop, made of iron wire, has been pushed into the surface of the lead alloy and is broken at one point. Dimensions: height: 61.7mm; width: 45.5mm. Weight: 507g (just over one and a half Roman librae).

Very large, lead-filled copper alloy steelyard weight in the form of a quarter-length bust of a boy satyr, height approximately 92mm, weight 862g . His long hair is gathered up in a Harpocrates-style top-knot worn widely by children whilst two thick curls run down each side of his head. Four curls run down the back of his neck above the lead filling. There is iron staining behind the topknot, all that remains of the iron loop from which the steelyard weight would have suspended. The face is damaged, the nose and right eye having broken off, presumably due to expansion of the iron and …

Lead weight, cylindrical but with most of the central length of a smaller diameter, i.e. bobbin or cotton reel shaped. Perhaps Roman (see NLM-A2C934). Length 38.5. Diameter 21.5 - 33mm. Weight 253g. It may be a coincidence that this is little more than 9 Roman ounces (unciae) or ¾ pound (librum), c.243g. Mid 1st - 4th century.

Roman lead biconical steelyard weight with an iron suspension loop that survives only where embedded. Height 41mm. Diameter 35mm. Weight 187g. The closeness of the weight to 7 unciae / Roman ounces (c.189g) is coincidental.

Lead Weight. Cast object of waisted bobbin or cotton reel form, with two oval ends of length/diameter 30mm and 28.5mm with a constriction to a diameter of c.20mm between them. Heavily patinated and pitted by corrosion. The bobbin form and the slight inequality in the sizes of the ends are both features of a class of objects considered of possibly Roman date on account of their appearance along with Roman material reported from Newbald Lodge, East Riding of Yorkshire. Similar objects are known from Lincolnshire, with several recently reported. The constriction may have permitted tied…
