Theoretical spectral energy distributions are computed for a grid of hydrogen-deficient and carbon-rich model atmospheres with a range in Teff of K and of , using the technique of opacity sampling, and taking into account continuous, atomic line and molecular band absorption. The energy distributions are compared with the spectrum of V4334 Sgr (Sakurai's object) of August 12, 1998 in the wavelength interval nm. This comparison yields an effective temperature of V4334 Sgr of , and a value for the interstellar plus circumstellar reddening of .
Key words: stars: individual: V4334 Sgr / stars: AGB and post-AGB / stars: fundamental parameters
