We characterise the respective semigroups of mappings that preserve, or that preserve or reverse orientation of a finite cycle, in terms of their actions on oriented triples and oriented quadruples. This leads to a proof that the latter semigroup coincides with the semigroup of all mappings that preserve intersections of chords on the corresponding circle.
