I also hate to point out the obvious.

inscribed (from http://www.dictionary.com):

Mathematics. To draw (one figure) within another figure so that every vertex of the enclosed figure touches the outer figure.

inscribed (from http://www.m-w.com):
to draw within a figure so as to touch in as many places as possible <a regular polygon inscribed in a circle>
