    If you click through "Galaxy Zoo examine" and then "SDSS Skyviewer" you can see the spectrum of this.

    That tells me immediately it's not an AGN

    It is very bright though, it's a relatively compact collection of stars in the centre of this old galaxy.

    An AGN would show broad emission lines in the spectrum (which I don't see)

    I can tell it's old, also because there are no narrow emission lines, and the spectrum is very red. 😃
