Broad period: ROMAN
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
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 …

Roman bi-conical cast lead steelyard weight, the upper part more steeply conical than the lower. The weight has a mass of iron corrosion, previously the suspension loop, projecting from the top. The central ridge where the two conical ends meet is slightly rounded as are the top and bottom points. It is 43.6mm tall, 58.9mm including the iron, 49.2mm in diameter and weighs 502 grams

County: Norfolk

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…

Roman lead biconical steelyard weight with the remains of an embedded iron suspension loop. Diameter 26mm. Height 24mm. It is perhaps a coincidence that the weight is almost exactly 2.5 x 1 Roman ounce (uncia) of c.27.08g, for there is no need for a steelyard weight to relate to a fixed weight system.

A lead steelyard weight of probable Roman date. It is biconical in form with a pointed base and the remains of an iron suspension loop visible at both top and bottom of the weight. It measures 23.64mm in length, 23.66mm in diameter, and weighs 47.03g. This is a steelyard weight of probable Roman date, although a later date cannot be ruler out entirely.

An incomplete copper-alloy steelyard weight of Roman date. Three fragments of the weight survive, probably representing around three quarters of the original artefact. The well-made object takes the form of a three-dimensional representation of a male bust emerging from a calyx. The male has a bald head and realistically portrayed facial features: the ears are small and moulded in low relief; the eyes are set within deep sockets; the nose is of flattened appearance; the unsmiling mouth consists of a short groove and is bordered by a full beard with large, drooping moustache. The bus…

Lead Weight. Cast weight of cotton reel or bobbin form, with the two ends of slightly unequal size: with diameters of circa 35mm and 34mm with a constriction to diameter 25mm between them. The form may be intended to permit a tied fastening in the waist of the object, or may facilitate a function requiring the weight to move, possibly in a channel like a sash weight. Objects of this form were reported along with predominantly Roman period material from Newbald Lodge, East Riding of Yorkshire, and further examples are occasionally reported. Suggested date: probably Roman, 40-400. D…

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.

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 steelyard weight of probable Roman date. The solid-cast weight is biconical, its two sides being of roughly equal length.
