    Abstract

    Using deep B-band imaging down to similar to mu(B) = 26 mag arcsec(-2), we present evidence for tidal tails in the Antlia Dwarf galaxy, one of the most distant members of the Local Group. This elongation is in the direction of Antlia s nearest neighbor, the Magellanic-type NGC 3109. The tail is offset by
