Abstract

PKS 1413+135 is an enigma: while classified as a BL Lac due to its polarized near-IR continuum (Stocke et al. 1992) and optical spectrum (Beichmann et al. 1981), it appears to lie within a spiral host (McHardy et al. 1991, Stocke et al. 1992). In addition, the AGN is highly obscured (Beichmann et al. 1981, Carilli et al. 1992, Stocke et al. 1992, Wiklind & Combes 1994, 1995). Yet there is no evidence that the absorbing gas is being heated and re-emitting the AGN radiation in the form of thermal IR or emission lines (as in, e.g., Sey 2s). This led Stocke et al. (1992) to suggest that the AGN might be background to the optical galaxy.
