We discuss closure properties of polygonal paths with vertices on the sides of a given polygon p and sides parallel to given directions vi. In particular it is investigated the question of closedness and periodicity of such paths, which for triangles is shown to be equivalent to Ceva's theorem.
Keywords: Thomsen's figure, Ceva's theorem, inscribed polygons.
