N2 - A poset is a containment of paths in a tree (CPT) if it admits a representation by containment where each element of the poset is represented by a path in a tree and two elements are comparable in the poset if and only if the corresponding paths are related by the inclusion relation. Recently Alc\'on, Gudi\~{n}o and Gutierrez introduced proper subclasses of CPT posets, namely dually-CPT, and strongly-CPT. A poset $\mathbf{P}$ is dually-CPT, if and only if $\mathbf{P}$ and its dual $\mathbf{P}^{d}$ both admit a CPT representation. A poset $\mathbf{P}$ is strongly-CPT, if and only if $\mathbf{P}$ and all the posets that share the same underlying comparability graph admit a CPT representation. Where as the inclusion between Dually-CPT and CPT was known to be strict. It was raised as an open question by Alc\'on, Gudi\~{n}o and Gutierrez whether strongly-CPT was a strict subclass of dually-CPT. We provide a proof that both classes actually coincide.
