An embedding of a simple graph G into its complement [`G] is a permutation σ on V(G) such that if an edge xy belongs to E(G), then σ(x)σ(y) does not belong to E(G). In this note we consider some fami-lies of embeddable graphs such that the corresponding permutation is cyclic.

Keywords: packing of graphs, unicyclic graphs, cyclic permutation.
