- Philolaus, connecting these ideas, held that the elementary nature of bodies depends on their form, and assigned the tetrahedron to fire, the octahedron to air, the icosahedron to water, and the cube to earth; the dodecahedron he assigned to a fifth element, aether, or, as some think, to the universe (see Plut.Advertisement
- The distance between adjacent vertices of the icosahedron is 5% longer than the distance between a vertex and the center.

- The first three were certainly known to the Egyptians; and it is probable that the icosahedron and dodecahedron were added by the Greeks.
- The equilateral triangle is the basis of the tetrahedron, octahedron and icosahedron.'Advertisement
- These solids played an important part in the geometry of the Pythagoreans, and in their cosmology symbolized the five elements: fire (tetrahedron), air (octahedron), water (icosahedron), earth (cube), universe or ether (dodecahedron).
- The great dodecahedron is determined by the intersections of the twelve planes which intersect the Platonic icosahedron in five of its edges; or each face has the same boundaries as the basal sides of five covertical faces of the icosahedron.
- The great icosahedron is the reciprocal of the great stellated dodecahedron.
- Each of the twenty triangular faces subtend at the centre the same angle as is subtended by four whole and six half faces of the Platonic icosahedron; in other words, the solid is determined by the twenty planes which can be drawn through the vertices of the three faces contiguous to any face of a Platonic icosahedron.
- Svo - Kat- rpoieKovra, thirty-two), is a 32-faced solid, formed by truncating the vertices of an icosahedron so that the original faces become triangles.Advertisement
