Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
- n. A solid having twenty-six faces, formed by the surfaces of the coaxial cube, octahedron, and rhombic dodecahedron. Among the thirteen Archimedean solids there are two such solids: one, usually so called, has the cubic and dodecahedral faces squares, and the octahedral faces triangles; while the other has the cubic faces octagons, the octahedral faces hexagons, and the dodecahedral faces squares. The latter is commonly called a truncated cuboctahedron, a misleading designation.
- n. An Archimedean solid with eight triangular and eighteen square faces, also known as the small rhombicuboctahedron.
- n. One of the small rhombicuboctahedron or great rhombicuboctahedron.
- From Latin rhombicuboctahaedron (Wiktionary)
