## Abstract

An elliptic deformation of {Mathematical expression} is proposed. Our presentation of the algebra is based on the relation RLL = LLR^{*}, where R and R^{*} are eight-vertex R-matrices with the elliptic moduli chosen differently. In the trigonometric limit, this algebra reduces to a quotient of that proposed by Reshetikhin and Semenov-Tian-Shansky. Conjectures concerning highest-weight modules and vertex operators are formulated, and the physical interpretation of R^{*} is discussed.
