An automorphism group \(G\) of a cyclically ordered set \(\left\langle {X,C} \right\rangle \) is said to be \({\text{c - 3}}\)-transitive if for any elements \(x_i ,y_i \in {\text{X }},{\text{ }}i = 1,2,3\), such that \(C(x_1 ,x_2 ,x_3 )\) and \(C(y_1 ,y_2 ,y_3 )\) there exists an element \(g \in G\) satisfying \(g(x_i ) = y_i \), \(i = 1,2,3\). We prove that if an automorphism group of a cyclically ordered set is \({\text{c - 3}}\)-transitive, then it is simple. A description of \({\text{c - 3}}\)-transitive automorphism groups with Abelian two-point stabilizer is given.
