Category 12: Podiumverts


The podiumverts (also called podites or fustrumverts) have vertex figures shaped like triangle podia and their facetings. There are 30 polychora in this category which is divided up into 4 regiments of 7 and the two extra members of the rit regiment sto and gotto. The 4 main regiments are gittith, gidthixhi, gixhihy, and shihix. Their 3-D counterparts are the regiments of gocco, gidditdid, gaddid, and siid. All of them have conjugates in category 11 except for sto and gotto. Following are the podites. Sto is tame while gotto is wild, of the other regiments - the third one (has inverted trigon cupola verf) along with the last two of each regiment (which have spiky verfs) are wild, others are tame. Many of the piece counts and LOCs may be inaccurate due to the neo-filling.
Slices of the Podiumverts

Above are slices of the podiumverts in order of the list below.


Rit Regiment Continued

Sto and Gotto Verfs

This 5 member regiment commonly shows up in several uniform polytera as terons (4-D facets) usually acting like it has 7 members (sto and gotto shows up twice since they can be oriented in two ways). All of them have 32 vertices. While the three members from category 3 has tessic symmetry, sto and gotto has demitessic symmetry. When rit is thought of as a demitessic regiment, it acts more like a podiumvert regiment. It's demitessic symbol is x8x. Sto and gotto were discovered by George Olshevsky in Nov. 1998.

482. Sto - (STO) small triakisoctachoron. Its cells are 8 tets, 8 ohoes, and 8 tuts. It also has 8 pseudo-tets. Its verf is a bowtie faced trip faceting. It has 248 pieces with six types, LOC = 36.

483. Gotto - (GOT toe) great triakisoctachoron. Its cells are 8 tets, 8 choes, and 8 tuts. Its verf is a crown-like trip faceting. It has 240 pieces in six types, LOC = 38.


Gittith Regiment

Gittith Verfs

The gittith regiment which has tessic symmetry is the conjugate of the sidpith regiment (from cat. 11), so it has 8 uniform members (one is gaquipadah which is counted in category 20), a compound member, and 6 scaliform members - there's also the blend of four gittiths which leads to yet another regiment, the gondip regiment which is loaded with scaliforms and compounds - however only the primary 7 gittith members are counted in category 12. These all have 64 vertices. Gittith's symbol is o(o'x"x), it is the 4-D version of gocco.
