A signed graph Γ is said to be determined by its spectrum if every signed graph with the same spectrum as Γ is switching isomorphic with Γ. Here it is proved that the path Pn, interpreted as a signed graph, is determined by its spectrum if and only if n≡0,1, or 2 (mod 4), unless n∈{8,13,14,17,29}, or n=3.
