The rhombihedron, rhom, or compound of five cubes is a uniform polyhedron compound. It consists of 30 squares. The vertices coincide in pairs, leading to 20 vertices where 6 squares join.
It has the same edges as the small ditrigonary icosidodecahedron.
This compound is sometimes considered to be regular, but it is not flag-transitive, despite the fact it is vertex, edge, and face-transitive. It is however regular if you consider conjugacies along with its other symmetries.
Its quotient prismatic equivalent is the cubic pentachoroorthowedge, which is seven-dimensional.
