Abstract: We construct two simple examples of strongly monotone time-periodic dynamical systems (of period $ \tau > 0$) possessing linearly stable subharmonic orbits of period $ n\tau $ for any integer $ n \geq 2$. The first example is an irreducible cooperative system of four ODE's that models positive feedback. The second example is a one-dimensional reaction-diffusion PDE with periodic boundary conditions. Our construction employs Chebyshev's polynomials.
