Semiregular Polyhedron

A polyhedron or plane tessellation is called semiregular if its faces are all regular polygons and its corners are alike (Walsh 1972; Coxeter 1973, pp. 4 and 58; Holden 1991, p. 41). The usual name for a semiregular polyhedron is an Archimedean solid, of which there are exactly 13. In addition, a prism or antiprism is considered semiregular if all its faces are regular polygons.
