The dodecahedral prism or dope is a prismatic uniform polychoron that consists of 2 dodecahedra and 12 pentagonal prisms. Each vertex joins 1 dodecahedron and 3 pentagonal prisms. It is a prism based on the dodecahedron. As such it is also a convex segmentochoron (designated K4.74 on Richard Klitzing's list).
