Summary/Abstract: The present paper debate the issues raised by the discovery of a special ceramic potwithin an archaeological complex belonged to Decea Muresului culture from Seusa- Gorgan site. After his analyses the ceramic pot was interpreted as a cultural import belonging to so called pottery type Cucuteni C. The ceramic type with shell fill in clay decorated with cord is a regular attendance in all settlements of Cucuteni culture from Moldova region (from the early stage of evolution of A3 phase). This type of ceramic pottery was interpreted sometimes as being an intrusion of the north pontic steppe cultural elements within Cucuteni area, and other times as a specific element of shepherds population who cohabitated with Cucuteni communities (Srednai Stog). The discovery of ceramic pot mentioned above within a Decea Muresului settlement located in Transylvania to a distance around 300 km far from it is originated area and the nearest Cucuteni settlement comes to clarify a particular point of view regarded to cultural and chronological position of eneolithic settlement developed here. But on the other side, is likely to raise many questions relating to developments in space and time of communities belonging to Decea Muresului culture. About these communities is believed to have arrived in Transylvania after the transited of Pannonian Plain (Csongrad).
