The chromospherically active star, δ CrB, has been optically variable for several years. It has now been found that the period of this variability increased over four years at the rate of about 10 days/year but that in the fifth year the variability ceased. The average brightness of the star over the same interval has varied by about 4% in what appears to be a roughly five-year cycle. A speculative explanation in terms of active regions and differential rotation is considered.
