I have a small booklet not yet mentioned.

Mutz, Alfred.  Romische Wagen und Gewichte aus Augst und Kaisaraugst.  Augster Museumshefte 6.  Augst 1983. 

Quite good at 64 pages.  Useful even to a non German speaker.  Interestingly only a small bit deals with weights.  Most deals with the  scales themselves.

Weber, Klaus. Byzantinische Münzgewichte: Materialkorpus Für 1-Nomisma-Gewichte : Studien Zur Vielfalt Der Ausführungsform, Metrologie Und Herstellung. Beihefte zur Zeitschrift für Metrologie, Issue 10. (Solingen, 2009).

It seemed like I registered, but the website does not let me log in.  I don't know how to order it, probably because I can't understand German. If one of our German members can order it and send it to me, I will send you a PayPal to reimburse you.

Available from two sellers on amazon.de but neither will ship to the U.S.

PS. I ordered 5 copies from the museum in Augst. German again, but I managed to stumble through the checkout - except it never asked for a credit card or told me how to pay.  Hopefully, the will let me know by email.
