The **8-simplex** (also called the **enneazetton**, or **ene**) is the simplest possible non-degenerate 8-polytope. The full symmetry version has 9 regular 7-simplices as facets, joining 3 to a 6-simplex peak and 8 to a vertex, and is regular. It is the 8-dimensional simplex.

## Vertex coordinates[edit | edit source]

The vertices of a regular 8-simplex of edge length 1, centered at the origin, are given by:

- ,

- .

Much simpler coordinates can be given in nine dimensions, as all permutations of:

- .

## Representations[edit | edit source]

A regular 8-simplex has the following Coxeter diagrams:

- x3o3o3o3o3o3o3o () (full symmetry)
- ox3oo3oo3oo3oo3oo3oo&#x (A
_{7}axial, octaexal pyramid)
