Early medieval trade in Europe, despite the spread of coins, was largely based on the need to weigh silver for payment. Not a single merchant who was engaged in eastern trade within the borders of Rus and the adjacent territories of the Khazar Khaganate did not do without a set of weights. A clear indication of the scale of this trade is the finds of the corresponding equipment, the comprehensive study of which can provide additional information about this vivid component of medieval history. In this work, we aim to highlight the issues related to the materials and technologies of creating weights found on the territory of Ukraine.
