The **deltoidal icositetrahedron**, also called the **strombic icositetrahedron** or **small lanceal disdodecahedron**, is one of the 13 Catalan solids. It has 24 kites as faces, with 6+12 order-4 and 8 order-3 vertices. It is the dual of the uniform small rhombicuboctahedron.

It can also be obtained as the convex hull of a cube, an octahedron, and a cuboctahedron. If the cube has unit edge length, the octahedron's edge length is and the cuboctahedron's edge length is

Each face of this polyhedron is a kite with its longer edges times the length of its shorter edges. These kites have three angles measuring and one angle measuring .
