    Is this an AGN?

    Not as far as I know. There are no X-ray or radio detections mentioned in the literature, but there isn't an optical spectrum available in SDSS. So we don't know for sure, but the current data would be consistent with a massive elliptical galaxy without an AGN. It does have a very bright and massive bulge toward the center, though.
