We report here the discovery of very low amplitude oscillations in the Pleiades star HD 23628. The 14-nights high quality light curve designates HD 23628 as a new member of the $\delta$ Scuti stars class. Amplitude spectra indicate a multi-periodic pulsation behaviour, and four pulsation frequencies have been detected so far. The frequency distribution suggests the presence of nonradial modes. Pulsation constant values of the four modes are distributed in the range corresponding to fundamental f to  p4 radial modes.

Key words: stars: oscillations -- stars: individual: HD 23628 -- stars: variables: $\delta$ Sct
