1988A&A...195L...5W Minor-axis rotation and triaxiality in elliptical galaxies S.J. Wagner, R. Bender, and C. Mollenhoff Landessternwarte Heidelberg, Konigstuhl, D-6900 Heidelberg, Federal Republic of Germany Received December 1, 1987; accepted February 23, 1988 Summary We present six new cases of minor-axis rotation in elliptical galaxies. This more than doubles the number of objects known to exhibit such a dynamical behaviour. Combining these results with other kinematical and morphological properties, we show that the observed galaxies most likely are of prolate or nearly prolate triaxial shape.
