An **isosceles trapezoidal pyramid** is a pyramid based on an isosceles trapezoid. It has 1 isosceles trapezoid as the base, 2 different isosceles triangles, and 2 identical scalene triangles as faces, with only bilateral symmetry.

## In vertex figures[edit | edit source]

A total of 30 uniform polychora have isosceles trapezoidal pyramids for vertex figures, including all the runcitruncated polychora, also known as prismatorhombates. In addition, 7 prisms, as well as all non-crossed antiprismatic prisms, have isosceles trapezoidal pyramids for vertex figures.
