The great snub icosidodecahedron or gosid is a uniform polyhedron. It consists of 60 snub triangles, 20 additional triangles, and 12 pentagrams. Four triangles and one pentagram meeting at each vertex.

## Measures

The circumradius R ≈ 0.81608 of the great snub icosidodecahedron with unit edge length is the second to largest real root of:

${\displaystyle 4096x^{12}-27648x^{10}+47104x^{8}-35776x^{6}+13872x^{4}-2696x^{2}+209.}$

Its volume V ≈ 7.67391 is given by the second to largest real root of:

{\displaystyle {\begin{aligned}&2176782336x^{12}-3195335070720x^{10}+162223191936000x^{8}+1030526618040000x^{6}\\{}&+6152923794150000x^{4}-182124351550575000x^{2}+187445810737515625.\end{aligned}}}

These same polynomials define the circumradii and volumes of the snub dodecahedron, the great inverted snub icosidodecahedron, and the great inverted retrosnub icosidodecahedron.
