We prove analytic hypoellipticity for a sum of squares of vector fields in ℝ3 all of whose Poisson strata are equal and symplectic of codimension four, extending in a model setting the recent general result of Cordaro and Hanges in codimension two [2]. The easy model we study first and then its easy generalizations possess a divisibility property reminiscent of earlier work of the author and Derridj in [3] and Grigis–Sjöstrand in [4].
