It is well-known from the pioneering works of Okamoto and
Noumi that Painleve IV equation admits special solutions when its
parameter space conforms with affine Weyl group $\tilde{A}_2$ symmetry.
We report that the linear equation that gives raise to P IV via
isomonodromy deformation in the classical works of Garnier and
Jimbo-Miwa also possesses special properties with the same parameter
space as the P_IV. This is a join work with Chun-Kong Law and Guofu Yu.
