Object type: STEELYARD WEIGHT
Broad period: ROMAN
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Fragment of a cast lead alloy steelyard weight with a conical top and a broken base. It has an iron bar though the centre which projects from the top and would have originally formed a suspension loop. It is now 25.8mm wide, 23.2mm tall and 22.3mm across; it weighs 36 grams. Biconical steelyard weights with iron suspension loops are common in the Roman period and although this fragment is broken and only the top conical section remains it is probably Roman in date.
