Roman Steelyard
Pic Antic 8

Rare 32,5 cm long  steelyard, Roman. Two load hooks on long chains. 3 weighing ways and graduations. Can not date this scale... would say about 1800 years old.
The both load hocks come separate. But I am sure the are original to this scale as the construction fit perfect. I found no books which show me such way to attach the chains... but sure I looked in the wrong books. Help is welcome ! 
She HAD three points to weigh but one hook is rotten. 
The end of the beam show some lead.... I think it was added later to calibrate the scale to an new standard of weighing.  I do not want to remove this as it came with the scale.

Three sides of the beam show graduations... one is clear
