A **disdyakis dodecahedron**, or **hexakis octahedron**, is the Catalan solid whose Archimedean dual is the truncated cuboctahedron. As such it is face uniform but with irregular face polygons. It looks a bit like an inflated rhombic dodecahedron — if one replaces each face of the rhombic dodecahedron with a single vertex and four triangles in a regular fashion one ends up with a disdyakis dodecahedron.
