# Category 13: Spic and Giddic Regiments

The spic and giddic regiments (which we can call the "squapverts") have vertex figures shaped like square antiprisms and their facetings. There are 20 polychora in each regiment giving this category 40 members, there are also two fissaries in each regiment. All members have either icoic or contic symmetry. Each of these have 144 vertices and 576 edges.

## Spic Regiment

This regiment can contain any of the following cells: 2 groups of 24 octs, 2 groups of 24 tics, 2 groups of 24 sircoes (and regiment), and 2 groups of 96 trips. Spic is convex and has the following symbol: xo'ox. The first 8 have contic symmetry, others have icoic. Tame ones are spic, siddic, sirc, ipi, and ridi. Feral ones are sripic and sarnipadi, all others are wild.
