Abstract: Let $ L$ be a left invariant differential operator on the nilpotent Lie group $ N$. It is shown that if $ \pi (L)$ is invertible for all irreducible representations $ \pi $ in general position (and if the inverses satisfy some mild technical conditions), then $ L$ is locally solvable. This result generalizes a theorem of $ {\text{L}}$. Rothschild.
