report on behalf of the Swift-XRT team:

We have analysed 12.3 ks of XRT data for the Fermi-LAT-detected burst GRB
130504C (Kocevski et al. GCn Circ 14574),  from 65.6 ks to 278.7 ks after
the  Fermi-LAT trigger. The data are entirely in Photon Counting (PC)
mode.  The X-ray source reported by D'Avanzo et al. (GCN Circ. 14584,
14588) displays a fading behaviour.

The overall light curve can be modelled with a power-law decay with a
decay index of alpha=1.39 (+0.32, -0.25).

We confirm it as the X-ray afterglow of GRB 130504C.

The results of the XRT-team automatic analysis are available at
