In House of Suns, Hesperus scratches a figure resembling a spoked wheel into a wine glass with his thumbnail. Does this represent the:

Remnants of the supramundane ring around Neume?

or the

Open stardam around the Andromeda wormhole?

or is it intentionally left ambiguous?

It's the orbital structure around Neume. Purslane realizes this upon approaching the planet and observing the structure from space:

‘Hesperus knew this place,’ Purslane said. [..] ‘His design - the cartwheel. We're looking at it. It's a picture of Neume, from space.’
