One sample of a magic-myth-puzzle which is a RubiksMagic with an odd number of tiles. This one has 9 tiles.

This is the outcome of Pantazis Houlis' interest in Rubiks Magic and its variants. He came up with the idea of "magic myths" which basically are puzzles like Rubiks-Magic-type with one main difference: The puzzle consists of a single loop of an odd number of tiles.
In his first announcement Pantazis mentioned three variants of magic myths:
5-tile: The Magic Thrones of the Gods
7-tile: The Magic Wrath of the Cyclops
9-tile: The Magic Secret of Atlantis

This is the variant with 9 tiles. It has two different solutions.
In the first one a column is depicted on the outside.
In the second solution the puzzle depicts a model of atlantis.

This puzzle attended the design competition during IPP27 in 2007.
