We present minor axis, offset major axis and one diagonal long slit spectra for 10 E and S0 galaxies of the Coma cluster drawn from a magnitude-limited sample studied before. We derive rotation curves, velocity dispersion profiles and the H3 and H4 coefficients of the Hermite decomposition of the line of sight velocity distribution. Moreover, we derive the line index profiles of Mg, Fe and H ${\beta}$ line indices and assess their errors. The data will be used to construct dynamical models of the galaxies and study their stellar populations.

Key words: galaxies: elliptical and lenticular, cD -- galaxies: kinematics and dynamics -- galaxies: stellar content -- galaxies: abundances -- galaxies: formation
