Results of magnetic susceptibility, specific heat and electrical resistivity measurements on a polycrystalline Ce2CuSi3 sample are reported. This compound shows the spin-glass behavior below T f= 2.7 K with extended short-range magnetic order. The spin glass state is considered to originate from the randomly distributed RKKY-type exchange interactions due to the disordering of Cu and Si atoms on the crystallographic sites.
