I'm not sure whether we have noticed this comprehensive database of Ancient and Byzantine weights:

For those interested in Gerald Finkielsztejn's articles on the Hellenistic weights of the Levant (available on the Academia site) many of the weights mentioned can be found in the Pondera database - search on Finkielsztejn 2014a and Finkielsztejn 2015 in the Bibliography option.

As well the Qedar collection (which features in Hendin as well as Finkielsztejn) can be found by searching via the Collection option.
