Summary: The Manev model and its real form dynamics are known to possess Ermanno-Bernoulli type invariants similar to Laplace-Runge-Lenz vector of Kepler model. Using these additional invariants, we demonstrate here that both Manev model and its real Hamiltonian form possess the same \({\mathfrak{so}}(3)\) or \({\mathfrak{so}}(2,1)\) symmetry algebras (in addition to the angular momentum algebra) on angular momentum level sets. Thus Kepler and Manev models are shown to have identical symmetry algebras and hence sharing more features than previously expected.
