It will suffice to state that the depth of each tomb is about two meters, and that upon the lower part of three of the parallelopipeds there exist pavements of crucial appearance.

A hyperprism with prism bases has for lateral boundary two prisms and a set of parallelopipeds.

The set of four prisms may also be generated by one of the polygon bases moving parallel to itself, its vertices tracing the parallelograms which join the parallelopipeds to one another.

If from the four prisms are taken four elements that form a parallelogram, the set of parallelopipeds may be generated by moving this parallelogram parallel to itself, its vertices tracing the ends of the prisms.

The parallelopipeds may then be cut apart along one common face and spread out in like manner, forming when rectangular a single right prism (parallelopiped).

The four prisms are joined in succession by their ends and the series of parallelopipeds are joined, each to the two next to it, by two opposite faces and to a lateral face of each of the four prisms by the remaining four faces.

If the four prisms are cut away from the parallelopipeds and cut apart along one common base they can be spread out in a single threespace, and if they are right prisms they become a single right prism.

On Friday last we abandoned our former works in parallelopipeds and proceeded to truncated prisms.

The Toleure, a tributary of the Aubonne, frequently large enough to be called a confluent, flows out from the foot of a wall of rock composed of regular parallelopipeds, and in the spring, when the snows are melting freely, its sources burst out at various levels of the rock.

Some of them are breaking the stones into convenient sizes, for the friable pumice breaks in parallelopipeds without effort.
