We present a new determination of the rotation period of the Ap star HD 208217 based on photometric and magnetic measurements. The variations of this star are remarkable by the strong anharmonicity of its lightcurves in all colours as well as by the double wave of its mean magnetic field modulus variations.

Key words: stars: chemically peculiar – stars: individual: HD 208217 – stars: rotation

* based on observations made at the European Southern Observatory (La Silla, Chile; ESO programmes Nos. 53.7-028, 54.E-0416 and 55.E-0751)
