The structure of the symmetry group of the relativistic hydrogen atom (no spins) is determined, in order to study how a symmetry group which places particles of different spin in the same supermultiplet can be incorporated into a relativistic theory. The difficulties associated with the extension of the symmetry group of the bound states to bound-state scattering are discussed.
