The small stellated tetracontoctachoron or sistic is a regular compound polychoron. It is a compound of six hexadecachora. It has 96 tetrahedra as cells, which lie in pairs in the same hyperplane so they combine into 48 stella octangulas. 8 cells join at each vertex. It can also be thought of as a compound of two stellated icositetrachora in opposite orientations, with each stellated icositetrachoron replacing an icositetrachoron in the stellated tetracontoctachoron.
