Abstract: By a generalized arc we mean a continuum with exactly two non-separating points; an arc is a metrizable generalized arc. It is well known that any two arcs are homeomorphic (to the real closed unit interval); we show that any two generalized arcs are co-elementarily equivalent, and that co-elementary images of generalized arcs are generalized arcs. We also show that if $f:X \to Y$ is a function between compacta and if $X$ is an arc, then $f$ is a co-elementary map if and only if $Y$ is an arc and $f$ is a monotone continuous surjection.
