Summary:
Let $p$ be a prime. We assign to each positive number $k$ a digraph $G_{p}^{k}$ whose set of vertices is $\{1,2,\ldots ,p-1\}$ and there exists a directed edge from a vertex $a$ to a vertex $b$ if $a^k\equiv b \pmod {p}$. In this paper we obtain a necessary and sufficient condition for $G_{p}^{k_{1}}\simeq G_{p}^{k_{2}}$.
