De Vaucouleurs Atlas Description:

The differentiation into lens and envelope is weak in this case, but there is little doubt that the galaxy is an S0. The envelope is very extended, and there are signs of dust near the galaxy minor axis. These dust patches are thought to be due to an inner polar ring (Fried and Illingworth 1994; Sil'chenko and Afanasiev 2004)
