Detection of a new X-ray source with the Einstein Observatory and its identification with the early type spiral (Sa) galaxy NGC 2196 (MCG 4-15-14), a member of Sersic's (1973) list of peculiar nuclei galaxies is reported. The X-ray luminosity of the galaxy is found to be ~2 1040 erg s−1 which is an order of magnitude higher compared to that of the normal spiral galaxies but comparable to that observed from weakly-active galaxies. The optical and X-ray characteristics of the galaxy are discussed and compared with those of the other normal and weakly-active galaxies.
