(1) Best match with several Type Ia SNe around B-band maximum light. The expansion velocity of the ejected material, as inferred from the position of the absorption of the Si II 635.5 nm line is about 9500 km/s. The host galaxy redshift is from Paturel et al. 2003, A&A 412, 57 (via NED).
Classification was done with GELATO (Harutyunyan et al. 2008, A&A, 488, 383) and SNID (Blondin and Tonry 2007, ApJ, 666, 1024). The Asiago classification spectra are posted at the website http://sngroup.oapd.inaf.it.
