Summary/Abstract: Monetary emissions identified in the funerary inventory from Pîclişa belong to the Árpád kings Stephen I / M. 2 (10%), Peter I / M. 7 (10%) and Andrew I /M. 2, M. 13, M. 15 and M. 18 (80%). Several positions of deposition were evidenced following archaeological researches: in the left hand (M. 18), area of left forearm (M. 2), in the mouth (M. 18), under skull (M. 13), near skull (M. 2), upper part of the body and area of thorax (M. 7, M. 15). In general, they appear in one piece in the grave, but there were also remarked situations with three (M. 2) or four pieces (M. 18), rarer by far, with exception of perforated pieces. Funerary inventory consists also of forms I-II, 10, 13, 27 and 29 Giesler, which are connected in some cases with the Árpád denarii. As terminus post quem for the necropolis from Pîclişa may be proposed year 1070 the latest, to the support of this time line coming also the hair rings with s-shaped end lacking longitudinal ribs.
