### Reflections of the Circumcircle in the cevians

Let ABC be a triangle and P a point. Let (O1),(O2), (O3) be the reflections of the circumcircle (O) in BC, CA, AB, resp.

Let (O11), (O22), (O33) be the reflections of (O1), (O2), (O3) in AP, BP, CP, resp., L1,L2,L3 the radical axes of [(O22),(O33)], [(O33),(O11)], [(O11), (O22)], resp. and M1,M2,M3 the parallels to L1,L2,L3 through A,B,C resp.

Which is the locus of P such that M1,M2,M3 are concurrent?
