The production and decay of $$^{278}$$113 has been investigated using a gas-filled recoil ion separator in irradiations of $$^{209}$$Bi targets with $$^{70}$$Zn beam at 353 MeV. We have observed one $$alpha$$-decay chain that can be assigned to subsequent decays from $$^{278}$$113 produced in the $$^{209}$$Bi($$^{70}$$Zn,n) reaction. After emitting four consecutive $$alpha$$-particles, the both chains ended by spontaneous fission decays of $$^{262}$$Db and decay energies and decay times of the both chains obtained in the present work agree well with those reported by our group in 2004. The present result gives the first clear confirmation of the discovery of $$^{278}$$113 and its $$alpha$$-decay products $$^{274}$$Rg reported previously.
