After adapting the well-known Euler and Feuerbach theorems for the isotropic plane, the connection among the circumcircle, Euler circle, tangential circumcircle, and the polar circle of a given allowable triangle has been shown. It has been proved that all four circles belong to the same pencil of circles. There are two more interesting circles in this pencil.
Keywords: Isotropic plane, triangle, Feuerbach theorem, pencil of circles.
