Every elliptic quartic C4 of PG(3, q) with n GF(q)-rational points provides a near-MDS code C of length n and dimension 4 such that the collineation group of C4 is isomorphic to the automorphism group of C. In this paper we assume that GF(q) has characteristic p>3. We classify the linear collineation groups of PG(3, q) which can preserve an elliptic quartic of PG(3, q). Also, we prove for q>112 that if the j-invariant of C4 does not disappear, then C cannot be extended in a natural way by addinga point of PG(3, q) to C4.
