The resistance and a.c. magnetic susceptibility of BaMo6S8 have been measured under pressure. A resistance-anomaly, indicative of the reported structural transformation at ∼ 145 K, was observed. Non-bulk superconductivity with a pressure dependent signal size was induced by a quasi-hydrostatic pressure {reversed tilde equals} 15 kbar but not a hydrostatic pressure up to 18 kbar down to 1.2 K.
