W. Boynton, C. Fellows, K. Harshman, H. Enos, and R. Starr,
on behalf of the GRS-Odyssey GRB team, report:

The long-duration GRB 180113C (Fermi GBM detection: Veres et al.,
GCN 22334) was detected by Fermi(GBM), Konus-Wind, INTEGRAL(SPI-ACS),
Mars-Odyssey (HEND), and Swift(BAT) at about 36125 s UT (10:02:05).
The burst was outside the coded field of view of the BAT.

We have triangulated it to a preliminary, 3 sigma error box whose 
coordinates are:
---------------------------------------------
   RA(2000), deg                 Dec(2000), deg
  ---------------------------------------------
  Center:
   175.300 (11h 41m 12s) -63.261 (-63d 15' 40")
  Corners:
   173.892 (11h 35m 34s) -62.126 (-62d 07' 33")
   176.415 (11h 45m 40s) -64.502 (-64d 30' 07")
   176.856 (11h 47m 26s) -64.371 (-64d 22' 16")
   174.311 (11h 37m 15s) -62.002 (-62d 00' 07")
  ---------------------------------------------
The error box area is 2174 sq. arcmin, and its maximum
dimension is 2.67 deg (the minimum one is 13.8 arcmin).
The Sun distance was 82 deg.

This box may be improved.

The Konus-Wind time history and spectrum will be given in a forthcoming
GCN Circular.
