Half of a flat cylindrical limestone weight. Second Temple Period. Based on the weight and size of the object, the complete weight would’ve had a weight similar to Maneh weights found in the vicinity of the Old City. The sifting has also unearthed disc-shaped lead weights, weighing ⅛ maneh belonging to the Hellenistic Period (3rd-2nd cent. BCE).
