Beardon gave a procedure for constructing a polygon with prescribed angles. For each ordered set of angles Beardon's polygon is unique up to congruence. The polygon obtained this way has an inscribed circle. It is possible to obtain by means of these polygons a fundamental region for a non-Euclidean crystallographic (NEC) group with a given signature having equal angles in each of the cycles. In [5] the minimal number of sides of a convex fundamental region of an NEC group is calculated, and regions are explicitly obtained achieving the bound.
