We have looked for evidence of excited lepton production in Z0 decay observed in the ALEPH detector at LEP. We find no ℓℓγγ events and set new limits at 95% CL on ℓ∗ masses at 44.6, 44.6 and 41.2 GeV/c2 for respectively. Observed events in the ℓℓγ channels are consistent with radiative effects and we set limits for the first time on the coupling for ℓ∗ masses in the range up to 86 GeV/c2.
