Re:NGC 4621
NGC 4621. The X-ray luminosity of this source is extremely low. This makes the
source suitable to test the prediction of YC05. As pointed out by Wrobel et al.
(2008), application of the correlation of YC05 (Equation (3)) predicts the
observed radio flux to be {nu}L_{nu}_(8.5 GHz) = 1.5 * 10^35^ erg s^-1^, which
is in very good agreement with the observed value of {nu}L_{nu}_(8.5 GHz) = 3.3
* 10^35^ erg s^-1^.

Re:NGC 4621
The black hole masses of NGC 2974, NGC 3414, NGC 4552, NGC 4621, NGC
5813 and NGC 5846 are taken from Cappellari et al. (2007b) with a formal
error of 10 per cent (1{sigma} CL), which is approximately converted
from the 30 per cent error at 3{sigma} CL.

Re:NGC 4621
This is another object with a strong indication from the stellar kinematics of a
disc component, which is also seen in the metal line strength maps showing more
flattened isoindex contours than the isophotes. The inner 60 pc harbour a
counter-rotating core (Wernli, Emsellem & Copin 2002). The H{beta} map appears
relatively flat.

Re:NGC 4621
Emission in this galaxy is found the centre and in a number of isolated sources.
Also in this case, the scattered sources broadly follow the main stellar stream.
As in NGC 4552, template mismatch affects the central {sigma}_gas_ measurements,
but in this case the gas velocities do not show significant rotation and instead
appear to be offset from the central stellar velocities, which are close to
zero. The presence of nuclear emission should therefore be confirmed. No
H{alpha}+[N II] emission was detected by Goudfrooij et al. (1994).

Re:VCC 1903
VCC 1903 (M59, NGC 4621).The g-band images are saturated within the inner 0.25".
Based on the z-band image only, there does not appear to be a morphologically
distinct nucleus; however, there is a clear, edge-on, thin, faint stellar disk,
extending at least 10" from the center. The presence of the disk is reflected in
the B4 coefficient.

Re:NGC 4621
NGC 4621. We extracted a spectrum from a 2' (10 kpc) aperture. There is
very little diffuse emission, and the undetected point-source component
dominates the spectrum; however, a ~0.3 keV gas component was needed. The
abundances could not be constrained well.

Re:NGC 4621
NGC 4621.-This E5 galaxy (M59) lies about 3^deg^ west of M87 in the Virgo
Cluster and has about the average extinction for the Virgo Cluster (2.2 x
10^20^ cm^-2^), but it clearly shows Galactic H_2_ absorption along with the
usual Galactic atomic absorption lines. However, the redshift of the galaxy
places both O VI lines in uncontaminated regions, and the spectrum is of
moderately good S/N (Fig. 19). There is no evidence for emission lines of
either O VI line or of C III.

Re:NGC 4621
NGC 4621: This object is another case showing indication for a disc-like
component with strong anticorrelation between V and h 3 (Bender 1990;
Bender et al. 1994). A counter-rotating component is also detected
inside 2 arcsec, previously discovered with adaptive optics assisted
integral-field spectroscopy (Wernli, Emsellem & Copin 2002).

Re:NGC 4621
Three images of NGC 4621 in each of F555W and F814W were obtained.
We used the nuclear offset position for SN 1939B (53" S) from the online
Asiago catalog; it occurred toward the edge of the galaxy, away from the
central region. Several faint stars or clusters, as well as an
unresolved background of stars, are within the large (10" radius) error
circle. Using PSF fitting we have subtracted the foreground stars and
measured the color of the unresolved light within the error circle,
which is F555W - F814W = 1.37 mag, consistent with a background of
K-giant stars. It is therefore most likely that this SN I was a SN Ia,
rather than a SN Ib/c; the host galaxy is of early type, and the SN did
not occur in or near a region of recent star formation. The progenitor
of SN 1939B, based on the color of the environment, was likely old and

NGC 4621, situated in the eastern outskirts of the Virgo Cluster,
is closer to subcluster A than to subcluster B (Binggeli, Tammann, and
Sandage 1987). It has prototypical E5 morphology. The isophotes are
ellipses with no pointed tips, characteristic of a disk. Such types
would require an E/S0 or S0 classification. The image has moderate
compactness and no evidence of an outer envelope.

NGC 4621 is a normal E5, not an S0. It is
shown here to provide a comparison with the
definite and pronounced S0 types elsewhere on
this page. Note the absence of an extended outer
envelope in contrast to the envelopes in NGC
2784, NGC 7302, and NGC 3245.

NGC 4621: A large and typical diE with the disk embedded in a
spheroidal envelope (see modelling in Simien & Michard 1990).
