The {8,8∣3} is a compact regular skew apeirohedron in 3-dimensional hyperbolic space. Its faces are exactly the octagonal faces of the cyclotruncated cubic-octahedral honeycomb. It is a self-dual polyhedron, and it also shares a symmetry group with another hyperbolic regular skew apeirohedron: {6,6∣4}.
