Abstract: Two compact Hausdorff spaces are co-elementarily equivalent if they have homeomorphic ultracopowers; equivalently if their Banach spaces of continuous real-valued functions have isometrically isomorphic Banach ultrapowers (or, approximately satisfy the same positive-bounded sentences). We prove here that any locally connected compact metrizable space co-elementarily equivalent with an arc (resp. a simple closed curve) is itself an arc (resp. a simple closed curve). The hypotheses of metrizability and local connectedness cannot be dropped.
