The **penteractic pentacomb** or **penth**, also called the **penteractic honeycomb** or **5-cubic honeycomb**, is the only regular pentacomb or tessellation of 5D Euclidean space. 4 penteracts join at each cell, and 32 join at each vertex of this honeycomb. It is the 5D hypercubic honeycomb.

## Vertex coordinates[edit | edit source]

The vertices of a penteractic pentacomb of edge length 1 are given by (i, j, k, l, m), where i, j, k, l, m are integers.

## Representations[edit | edit source]

A penteractic pentacomb has the following Coxeter diagrams:

- x4o3o3o3o4o (full symmetry)
- o3o3o *b3o3o4x (half symmetry)
