We report on the multiphase absorption-line system detected at a redshift in the spectrum of the quasi-stellar object CTQ 325 (). The system is displaced by km s-1 to the blue of the systemic velocity defined by the center of the symmetric quasar emission line. It consists of shallow and broad (~700 km s-1 FWHM) absorption lines of , , and , produced by collisionally ionized gas and of narrow absorption lines ( km s-1) of Ly, , and produced by photoionized gas. Possible origins of this system are discussed.
