The dodecahedral tegum or dote, also called the dodecahedral bipyramid, is a convex isochoric polychoron with 24 pentagonal pyramids as cells. As the name suggests, it can be constructed as a tegum based on the dodecahedron.

It is the only tegum based on a Platonic solid that can't be made CRF.

In the variant obtained as the dual of the uniform icosahedral prism, the height from the top to the bottom vertex is times the edge length of the base dodecahedron.
