[en] In this article, we provide bounds on systoles associated to a holomorphic 1-form omega on a Riemann surface X. In particular, we show that if X has genus two, then, up to homotopy, there are at most 10 systolic loops on (X, omega) and, moreover, that this bound is realized by a unique translation surface up to homothety. For general genus g and a holomorphic 1-form omega with one zero, we provide the optimal upper bound, 6g - 3, on the number of homotopy classes of systoles. If, in addition, X is hyperelliptic, then we prove that the optimal upper bound is 6g - 5.
