Hello to everyone.
I have a question for anyone that can answer. What is the weight in grams for an lead roman slingshot? I want to compare it with the prehistoric slingshots made by clay. Thanks!!

Can't remember specifics but generally quite light, 20-60g.

IIRC the lightest ones were the ones with holes that whistled, there was some speculation that they could carry incendiaries or poison inside the voids.
