2002A&A...384..371S Kinematical data on early-type galaxies. VI. F. Simien and Ph. Prugniel CRAL-Observatoire de Lyon, CNRS: UMR 142, 69561 St-Genis-Laval Cedex, France Received 8 June 2001/Accepted 7 December 2001 Abstract. We present the result of spectroscopic observations of a sample of 73 galaxies, completing the database published in this series of articles. The sample contains mostly low-luminosity early-type objects, including four dwarfs of the Local Group (in particular, deep spectra of NGC 205), 15 dEs or dS0s in the Virgo cluster, and UGC 05442, a spheroidal dwarf of the M 81 group. We have measured the central velocity dispersion for all but one object, and determined the major-axis rotation and velocity-dispersion profiles for 59 objects. For the current sample of diffuse (or dwarf) elliptical galaxies, we have compared stellar rotation to velocity dispersion; the analysis suggests that these objects may be nearly rotationally flattened, and therefore that anisotropy may be less important than previously thought. Key words: galaxies: elliptical and lenticular, cD - galaxies: kinematics and dynamics - galaxies: fundamental parameters - galaxies: general
