In geometry, the rhombicuboctahedron[1], or small rhombicuboctahedron, is an Archimedean solid with eight triangular and eighteen square faces.

Johannes Kepler in Harmonices Mundi (1618) named this polyhedron a rhombicuboctahedron, being short for truncated cuboctahedral rhombus, with cuboctahedral rhombus being his name for a rhombic dodecahedron.

The shape is found in Jacopo de' Barbari's painting Portrait of Luca Pacioli.
