Roman find made in Selkirk in Treasure Trove report
A copper alloy cast in the shape of an eagle head uncovered in Selkirk is the first Roman relic of its kind to have been found north of the border.
The weights dating from the 1700s were unearthed at Fortrose.
The finds, along with others made in Perth and Kinross and Fife, are mentioned in a new report.
The seventh annual Scottish Treasure Trove report catalogues ancient and historic items found between April 2011 and March this year.
The Queen's and Lord Treasurers Remembrancer (QLTR) and the Scottish Archaeological Finds Allocation Panel (SAFAP) dealt with the discoveries.
