PronunciationEdit
 IPA^{(key)}: /hɛksəɪkoʊsɨˈkoʊrɔn/
NounEdit
hexacosichoron (plural hexacosichorons or hexacosichora)
 (mathematics) A fourdimensional object analogous to an icosahedron, constructed out of six hundred tetrahedra, arranged 20 to a vertex.

 Fig. 5 shows a polar representation of 5880 rotations generated by subsampling the hexacosichoron.

 The present paper deals with a collection of 60 rays in a 4dimensional real vector space represented by the vertices of a hexacosichoron (i.e. a 4dimensional analogue of the icosahedron).
 Comment: the reviewer uses the word, the reviewed paper uses 600cell only.
 2012, Andrzej Katunin, Fractals based on regular convex polytopes, page 57:
 The hexacosichoron with an edgelength of 2φ^{1} could be constructed from the next permutations of its 120 vertices.
