The **great rhombihexahedron**, or **groh**, is a uniform polyhedron. It consists of 12 squares and 6 octagrams. Two squares and two octagrams meet at each vertex. It also has 8 triangular pseudofaces and 6 square pseudofaces.

It is a faceting of the great cubicuboctahedron, using its 6 octagrams along with 12 squares of the quasirhombicuboctahedron.

It can be constructed as a blend of three orthogonal octagrammic prisms, with 6 pairs of coinciding square faces blending out.

## Vertex coordinates[edit | edit source]

Its vertices are the same as those of its regiment colonel, the great cubicuboctahedron.

## Related polyhedra[edit | edit source]

The rhombisnub quasihyperhombihedron is a uniform polyhedron compound composed of 5 great rhombihexahedra.
