On the basis of our new simultaneous photometry and spectroscopy (885 uvby differential measurements in 11 nights and 154 spectrograms of the FeII[FORMULA]4508 region in 5 nights), we can detect 12 probable periodicities in the variability pattern of this star, determining the frequencies of 7 without any ambiguity. Through a direct fit of pulsational models to our data, we estimate the inclination of rotational axis to be about 50o and get a reliable identification of 4 modes as well as useful bits of information about the others: no retrograde mode is visible, whereas the star seems to show a certain preference for purely sectorial prograde oscillations. Finally, the attribution of our lowest frequency to the radial fundamental pulsation allows a new calibration of physical parameters. In particular, the gravity can be determined with unusual accuracy and the luminosity evaluation becomes more consistent with the Hipparcos astrometry.
