The light curve of the new variable star that Stepanian discovered in 1979 is given based on photoelectric observations made at Kryonerion Astronomical Station of the National Observatory of Athens during April 1980. The variable is an eclipsing binary of short period and the differences between primary minimum and a mean value at maximum were found to be 2 . m 425 in B and 2 . m 925 in V.
