In eight-dimensional geometry, a cantellated 8-simplex is a convex uniform 8-polytope, being a cantellation of the regular 8-simplex.

There are six unique cantellations for the 8-simplex, including permutations of truncation.

### Alternate names

• Small rhombated enneazetton (acronym: srene) (Jonathan Bowers)[1]

### Coordinates

The Cartesian coordinates of the vertices of the cantellated 8-simplex can be most simply positioned in 8-space as permutations of (0,0,0,0,0,0,1,1,2). This construction is based on facets of the cantellated 9-orthoplex.
