There are 9 lines on the Cayley surface. - Six of the lines join pairs of nodes. These lines are traced in black on the figure. Thus, the nodes are the vertices of a tetrahedron, and these six lines are the edges of the tetrahedron.
- The other three lines lie in the
plane, which is discussed on the duality page. These lines are traced in white on the surface.*tritangent*
