The pentagonal antitegum, also known as the pentagonal trapezohedron, is an antitegum based on the pentagon, constructed as the dual of a pentagonal antiprism. It has 10 kites as faces, with 2 order–5 and 10 order–3 vertices.

Each face of this polyhedron is a kite with its longer edges times the length of its shorter edges. These kites have 3 angles measuring 108° and 1 measuring 36°.

The pentagonal antitegum can be constructed from the regular dodecahedron by augmenting tall pyramids on two opposite faces.

In tabletop games, it is a popular design for a 10-sided die or "d10." A standard set of dice used in role-playing games comprises the five Platonic solids and two d10s, one marked with the numbers 0-9 and the other with the multiples of 10 from 00-90.
