report on behalf of the AGILE Team:

The AGILE satellite detected the GRB 230608A at T0 = 2023-06-08
18:34:36 s (UTC),
detected also by INTEGRAL SPI-ACS (trigger no.10282).

The burst is clearly visible in the AGILE scientific ratemeters of the
MiniCALorimeter (MCAL; 0.4-100 MeV), and AntiCoincidence (AC; 50-200 keV)

The event lasted about 5 s and it released a total number
of 3966 counts in the MCAL detector (above a background rate of 532 Hz)
and 19256 counts in the AC-Top detector (above a background rate of 2875 Hz).
The AGILE ratemeters light curves can be found at

Additional analysis of AGILE data is in progress.
