The **small rhombicuboctahedral prism** or **sircope** is a prismatic uniform polychoron that consists of 2 small rhombicuboctahedra, 6+12 cubes, and 8 triangular prisms. Each vertex joins 1 small rhombicuboctahedron, 1 triangular prism, and 3 cubes. As the name suggests, it is a prism based on the small rhombicuboctahedron. As such it is also a convex segmentochoron (designated K-4.66 on Richard Klitzing's list).

The small rhombicuboctahedral prism can be obtained from the small disprismatotesseractihexadecachoron by removing 2 cube atop small rhombicuboctahedron segmentochora.

## Representations[edit | edit source]

A small rhombicuboctahedral prism has the following Coxeter diagrams:

- x x4o3x (full symmetry)
- x2x4s3s () (bases as snubs)
- xx4oo3xx&#x (bases considered separately)
- xxxx xxxx4oxxo&#xt (BC
_{2}×A_{1}symmetry, cube-first) - xxx wxx xwx xxw&#zx (A
_{1}×A_{1}×A_{1}×A_{1}symmetry)

## Related polychora[edit | edit source]

The small rhombicuboctahedral prism can be constructed by attaching squarre cupolic prisms to 2 opposite octagonal prisms of the square-octagonal duoprism.

The regiment of the small rhombicuboctahedral prism also includes the small cubicuboctahedral prism and the small rhombihexahedral prism.
