I have never studied these weights
before so not sure how much of an input i can offer.
The Phoenician numeric system on these weights
is the same as that of the coins and easily deciphered, In a previous post the following weight
Elayi & Elayi 292 (Qedar 1983 5071) is quite clearly a 100 shekel weight
, but I am uncertain of the specific meaning of the letter X before 100 (note: numeric and alphabetic symbols
are predominantly read from right to left) ?
In the same post, Elayi & Elayi 309 is also recognizable as a 50 sheckel weight
7459 = 40 sheckel weight
Elayi & Elayi 309 = 455.7g, 7.7 x 7.12 cm.
Elayi & Elayi 292 = 914 g, 122 x 102 x 14 cm.
Lot: 1220 = 948 g, 8,4 x 10,7 cm.
Lot: 1221 = 1350 g, 9 x 11,6 cm.
In respect to lot 1221, there appears to be an additional numeric symbol to the left of 100. It´s difficult to make out what symbol this is but it could explain the weight
& size given by the auction
house and the Qedar sale of 1983 (1350 g / 1325 g). A closer study of the particular weight
