Broad period: ROMAN
County: West Berkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A lead alloy, biconical Roman steelyard weight. The weight is unusual in that it has ten iron nails or studs inserted into the bottom (underside) of the weight. Although the function of this is unclear it is likely that they were to add weight. The topsode of the steelyard weight bears the remains of an iron loop, likely for suspension. Only a couple of other such examples have been recorded on this database, including BH-F84FB6 and SF-8137B4.

Lead Weight. Cast weight of 'cotton reel' form. The object comprises a pair of flattened spheres, of diameters circa 31mm and 32mm, with a narrowed waist of circa 20mm between them. It appears likely this served as a groove to facilitate tied attachment. Patinated overall. Several similar weights have been recorded in association with Romano-British occupation debris from the East Yorkshire Wolds. Further examples come from Winterton, North Lincolnshire (NLM-A69C93) and Swinhope, Lincolnshire (NLM-E4BD18) where they are also associated with Roman finds. The object may have been in…

County: Somerset

Roman cast lead alloy conical weight with an iron suspension loop at the top point and slightly concave base. The loop is made of a semi circle of circular sectioned iron bar, embedded in the lead at both ends. It is 21.7mm in diameter and 29.4mm tall including the loop; it weighs 82.67 grams. Biconical steelyard weights with iron suspension loops are common in the Roman period and although this is conical rather than biconical it is probably Roman in date.

A large steelyard weight of composite construction, in the form of an acorn. The weight comprises two cases and a lead filling. The cases form the cup and fruit of the acorn. The cup is formed from a copper alloy which would have appeared yellow. The fruit is formed from a copper alloy with a high tin content and would have appeared grey. The cup is decorated with many random semi-circular punches. There are also short curving lines around the rim of the cup. The rectangular loop is almost worn through. Part of the lower case is damaged enough to expose the lead packed filling. The we…

Probable Weight. Cast conical weight with a rounded top and an irregular indentation at the base. A central longitudinal hole, probably cast using a former, tapers from 4.6mm to 3.5mm diameter from base to top. Patinated overall. The mass may suggest this object to represent one half of an (underweight) Roman pound or libra. The hole here could, have accommodated a suspension loop, the weight of which might have brought this object to match the Roman libra. Suggested date: Possibly Roman, 40-400. Diameter: 27.9mm, Height: 33.3mm, Weight: 157.52gms.
