Antiferromagnetic magnons Nd2CuO4, which is the mother material of the electron superconductor (Nd1-xCex)2CuO4-y, are observed by Raman scattering. The effective exchange integral estimated from the two-magnon peak energy is 1070 cm-1, which is unexpectedly large in spite of the large Cu-Cu atomic distance compared with those in other superconducting oxides. Lattice vibrations are also investigated. A large two-phonon peak due to the intralayer breathing mode is observed at 1178 cm-1.. AE
