(1) The expansion velocity inferred from the position of Halpha, Hbeta absorptions is about 8900, 8400 km/s, respectively.

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.
