The prismatorhombated icositetrachoron, or prico, also commonly called the runcitruncated 24-cell, is a convex uniform polychoron that consists of 96 triangular prisms, 96 hexagonal prisms, 24 truncated octahedra, and 24 small rhombicuboctahedra. 1 triangular prism, 2 hexagonal prisms, 1 truncated octahedron, and 1 small rhombicuboctahedron join at each vertex. As one of its names suggests, it can be obtained by runcitruncating the icositetrachoron.

The truncated octahedra can be alternated into icosahedra to create the scaliform prismatorhombisnub icositetrachoron.

Vertex coordinates[edit | edit source]

The vertices of a prismatorhombated icositetrachoron of edge length 1 are given by all permutations of:

  • ,
  • .

The second set of vertices is identical to the vertices of an inscribed great disprismatotesseractihexadecachoron.

The runcitruncation of the dual icositetrachoron has vertices given by all permutations of:

  • ,
  • ,
  • .

Representations[edit | edit source]

A prismatorhombated icositetrachoron has the following Coxeter diagrams:

  • x3x4o3x () (full symmetry)
  • s3s4x3x () (as runcicantic snub icositetrachoron)
  • ox4xx3xx3wx&#zx (B4 symmetry)
  • wxx3xxx3xwx *b3xxw&#zx (D4 symmetry)
  • xux4qoo3xxx3oqQ&#zx (B4 symmetry, dual ico)

Semi-uniform variant[edit | edit source]

The prismatorhombated icositetrachoron has a semi-uniform variant of the form x3y4o3z that maintains its full symmetry. This variant uses 24 truncated octahedra of form o4y3x, 24 small rhombicuboctahedra of form y4o3z, 96 triangular prisms of form x z3o, and 96 ditrigonal prisms of form z x3y as cells, with 3 edge lengths.

With edges of length a, b, and c (such that it forms a3b4o3c), its circumradius is given by .

Variations[edit | edit source]

Besides the semi-uniform variant, another isogonal variant known as the runcicantic snub icositetrachoron also exists, where the small rhombicuboctahedra have pyritohedral symmetry, the truncated octahedra have tetrahedral symmetry, and the hexagonal prisms have pyramidal symmetry only.

Related polychora[edit | edit source]

The prismatorhombated icositetrachoron is the colonel of a 3-member regiment that also includes the small prismatotrisicositetrachoron and small rhombiprismic disicositetrachoron.

The segmentochoron truncated octahedron atop great rhombicuboctahedron can be obtained as a cap of the prismatorhombated icositetrachoron. If eight of these caps are removed the result is the great disprismatotesseractihexadecachoron.
