NGC 4093 is an elliptical galaxy located 340 million light-years away[2] in the constellation Coma Berenices.[3] The galaxy was discovered by astronomer Heinrich d'Arrest on May 4, 1864.[4] NGC 4093 is a member of the NGC 4065 Group[5][6][7] and is a radio galaxy[8][9][10] with a two sided jet.[10]

A rotating disk in the galaxy was detected by K. Geréb et al.[8]
