We report spectroscopic observations of a new symbiotic star. This star is located in our Galaxy in the direction of the bulge and was discovered during a southern spectroscopic survey of Hα emission line objects. The star, SS73 71, after Sanduleak & Stephenson (1973), shows characteristics of a symbiotic star: the presence of TiO bands and emission lines of ions of higher ionization such as He ii4686 Å and [O iii]5007 Å. Here, we present some of the main spectroscopic features, line intensities and, whenever possible, some physical parameters.
Key words: binaries: symbiotic / stars: emission line, Be
