Archimedean Solids

Archimedean solids are semi-regular solids attributed to Archimedes by Pappus. Along with the Platonic regular solids the Archimedean solids are the most famous of the polyhedra. They were traditionally thirteen in number as listed below. Cundy and Rollett (1951) include two further solids in this category: the Archimedean prism and Archimedean antiprism as well as corresponding dual (vertically regular) polyhedra.
