Object type: STEELYARD WEIGHT
Broad period: ROMAN
County: North Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Lead steelyard weight fragment. Cast globular weight with a tapered central aperture of diameter 6.5-3.5mm. The surface is slashed and gouged and patinated overall; it appears likely that much of this surface damage was incurred in antiquity. Though there is provision for a suspension loop to be fitted, there is no trace of rust staining so if a loop was attached it was probably removed before the object was deposited, possibly incurring surface damage in the process. Some other gouges are of recent origin. Suggested date: Roman, 43-410. Diameter: 36mm, Height: 31.2mm, Weight: c.235gms.

An incomplete lead alloy steelyard weight, probably dating to the Roman period (AD 43 - 410). The weight is conical with iron corrosion at both the top and bottom of the weight, likely the remains an iron core. There is an iron hobnail protruding from one side of the weight with a raised protrusion beside it and two more nails protruding from the base of the weight. The weight measures 21.9 mm high, 29.8 mm in diameter and weighs 65.97 g.

A complete lead weight of uncertain date. It is circular in shape with rounded outer edges on both faces and is perforated with a circular hole in the centre. This hole appears slightly worn at one side suggesting that the object was suspended at some point. It could possibly have been used as a spindle whorl, but seems too irregularly shaped to have functioned correctly. It is worn and corroded. Because it lacks diagnostic features it could therefore easily date from the Roman to Modern period. Diameter: 25.02mm, thickness: 10.34mm, weight: 36.90g

County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Probably Roman lead steelyard weight with remains of an embedded iron suspension, pear-shaped with a collar at the top. The surface carries many V-sectioned gashes, none recent, along with an area of recent damage. Diameter 51mm. Height 56mm. Weight 663g. The proximity of this to 2 Roman pounds (libra), c.650g, is probably coincidental, because there is no need for a steelyard weight to conform to an exact unit.

Lead weight. Cast cylindrical or drum shaped object with flat ends of slightly unequal sizes with a slightly waisted body between them, resembling a cotton reel in its form. A pair of scratches may form a rough T on one end, though this may be adventitious damage. Patinated overall. Similar objects accompany Roman finds from various sites in northern Lincolnshire and the East Riding of Yorkshire, though the function of these objects remains uncertain. Suggested date: Roman, 43-410. Length: 35.6mm, Diameter: 38.1mm, Weight: c.350gms.

An incomplete lead steelyard weight of probable Roman date (c. AD 43 - 410). It measures 35.08mm in length, 31.24mm in diameter and weighs 136.53g. The weight is roughly spherical in shape wit a rough circumfertial groove near the top. The weight is heavily scratched and pitted, although the pattination of the lead suggests that this is old damage. There is an incompete iron suspension loop projecting from the tip of the weight terminating in two old breaks. It is surrounded by a large patch of iron corrosion across the top and there is a corresponding large patch of corrosion at the …

Roman lead steelyard weight with remains of an embedded iron suspension loop, biconical with a convex median band, in abraded condition with a small part missing. Height 30mm. Diameter 26mm. Weight 54.27 (the closeness to 2 Roman ounces (unciae), c.54g, is probably coincidental because there is no need for a steelyard weight to conform to an exact weight unit). Mid 1st - 4th century.

Lead and iron steelyard weight. Cast sub-spherical weight with an embedded iron loop of rectangular section [of thickness 8mm] with one end protruding from the opposite side - though its angular section might be acquired through the flaking of corrosion, the surface of the iron appears atypically sound. An iron chain link, again of rectangular section [of thickness 4mm] with two right-angled kinks, passes through the loop. Suggested date: Roman, 43-410. Diameter: 37mm, Height (suspended): 83mm, Weight: c.245gms.

A cast lead weight, possibly a steelyard weight or similar, of uncertain Roman or later date. It is circular in form oval in cross section, tapering slightly to top and botom surfaces. Visible through the centre of the object is a separately cast copper-alloy suspension loop with oval loop present extending from the top of the weight and the terminal end just visible at the bottom centre. All surfaces of the weight have extensive post-depositional corrosion. The entire object measures 20.51mm in length, 24.74mm in diameter, and 36.07g in weight. This is a simple lead weight, possib…

A cast lead steelyard weight of possible Roman or later date. It is roughly biconical in form, tapering at top and bottom, and unevenly cast around its circumference and upper edges. At the top centre are the remains of an iron loop that is now incomplete due to old breaks and not visible on the lower edge. The entire object measures 37.45mm in length, 37.67mm in diameter, and 182.49g in weight. This is probably a simple steelyard weight of possible Roman date, although a later date range cannot be ruled out entirely.

A composite lead and copper alloy weight probably of Roman or Medieval date. The weight is roughly ovoid in shape, but very crudely made. There is a strip of copper alloy folded in two embedded in the centre. Both end of this protrude from the weight for c.1.5cm and one is pierced with a small, circular hole and the other has a small knop extending from the end. An example with a similar construction from the PAS database: LIN-687B15. Length: 42.08mm, width: 19.97mm, weight: 46.61g

Two lead steelyard weights of probable Roman date. One of the weights is biconical in form with median band, or can also be described as cylindrical with conical ends. This has two stubs of iron at one end, the remains of the suspension loop. The other weight is asymmetric, both ends conical or convex, but one very much taller than the other. It has a groove across one end, suggetive of the presence of a suspension loop. The biconical weight weighs 48g and the other weighs 70g. Total weight 118g.

Lead possible weight. Sub-rectangular object of trapezoid section knife cut from thick cast sheet; patinated overall. The mass might suggest this to be a (slightly underweight) weight representing two drachmas (of 3.41gms) in the Roman system of weights and measures. Suggested date: possibly Roman, 43-410. Length: 14.7mm, Width: 11.4mm, Thickness: 5.8mm, Weight: 6.62gms.
