A detailed spectroscopic analysis of a Ginga observation of the Seyfert galaxy NGC 6814 is reported. It is shown that the X-ray data are consistent with a scenario in which the continuum radiation is reprocessed in a highly ionized medium, which can either be an accretion disk or a shell of absorbing material. Both of these can produce the strong observed iron K-alpha line, which must originate within 200 lt-sec of the continuum source. Significant iron K-beta and nickel K-alpha are predicted, based on the iron K-alpha line strength, and these lines partially conceal the iron edge in this source. The spectral variability below about 4 keV, where the apparent absorption increases as the continuum flux decreases, is probably caused by a warm absorber covering the reprocessing system.
