The stellated icositetrachoron or stico is a regular compound polychoron. It is a compound of three hexadecachora. It has 48 tetrahedra as cells which lie in pairs in the same hyperplane, so they combine into 24 stella octangulas. 8 cells join at each vertex.

Its quotient prismatic equivalent is the tridiminished icosiheptaheptacontadipeton, which is six-dimensional.

## Vertex coordinates

The vertices of a stellated icositetrachoron of edge length 1, centered at the origin, are given by all permutations of:

• ${\displaystyle \left(\pm {\frac {1}{2}},\,\pm {\frac {1}{2}},\,0,\,0\right).}$

The same stellated icositetrachoron in opposite orientation to this one has vertices given by all permutations of:

• ${\displaystyle \left(\pm {\frac {\sqrt {2}}{4}},\,\pm {\frac {\sqrt {2}}{4}},\,\pm {\frac {\sqrt {2}}{4}},\,\pm {\frac {\sqrt {2}}{4}}\right),}$
• ${\displaystyle \left(\pm {\frac {\sqrt {2}}{2}},\,0,\,0,\,0\right).}$
