Abstract: The elliptic curve has rank 3 over **Q**. Assuming the Weil-Taniyama conjecture for this curve, we show that its *L*-series has a triple zero at and compute to 28 decimal places; its value agrees with the product of the regulator and real period, in accordance with the Birch-Swinnerton-Dyer conjecture if **III** is trivial.
