Summary/Abstract: The need to republish this deposit is the result of the graphic conditions of the initial publishing – the photographs are, for all intents and purposes, incomprehensible, there are no drawings (Pădureanu 2006, p. 219-233), and the typological identification of several items is erroneous. The deposit was found close to the Neudorf, Arad county, in the summer of 2002, when a mobile telecom cable was being buried, at a depth of 0.75m, in the place called Pârâul Roşia, on the left bank of Mureş River. Based on the way in which the items were found, one presupposes that they were deposited in a wooden trunk (Pădureanu 2006, p. 219 and footnote 1). The deposit seems to have included 28 iron items, some of them being recovered and then offered for sale, in two lots (27 items and, then, the fighting knife), to the Arad Museum Complex (AMC), by Eugen Pădureanu, the same person that also published them for the first time (Pădureanu 2006, p. 219-233). First, we will introduce the catalogue of items and then we will make some observations on the composition of the deposit and some general assessments.
