The short-duration GRB 230723A
(Fermi GBM detection: The Fermi GBM team, GCN 34232;
AGILE/MCAL detection: Panebianco et al., GCN 34237)
has been detected by Fermi (GBM), Konus-Wind, 
AGILE (MCAL, AC), and Mars-Odyssey (HEND), so far, 
at about 16723 s UT (04:38:43).

We have triangulated it to a preliminary, 3 sigma error box
whose coordinates are:
  RA(2000), deg                 Dec(2000), deg
   22.909 (01h 31m 38s) -67.059 (-67d 03' 31")
   24.618 (01h 38m 28s) -66.230 (-66d 13' 48")
   24.638 (01h 38m 33s) -66.276 (-66d 16' 34")
   21.066 (01h 24m 16s) -67.859 (-67d 51' 31")
   21.054 (01h 24m 13s) -67.813 (-67d 48' 46")
The error box area is 265 sq. arcmin, and its maximum
dimension is 2.1 deg (the minimum one is 2 arcmin).
The Sun distance was 111 deg.

The IPN localization is consistent with, but reduces 
the area of, the Fermi-GBM final localization (GCN 34232).

This localization may be improved.

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