Relations to other Regular Maps

Its dual is the icosahedron.

Its Petrie dual is C6:{10,3}5.

It is a 2-fold cover of the hemidodecahedron.

It can be 2-split to give S5:{10,3}.

It can be rectified to give the icosidodecahedron.

It is the result of pyritifying (type 3/3/5/3) the tetrahedron.
It is the result of pyritifying (type 4/3/5/3) the cube.

It can be stellated (with path <1>) to give the dodecahedron. The density of the stellation is 7.
It can be stellated (with path <1,-1>) to give five tetrahedra in a dodecahedron. The density of the stellation is 5 * 1 = 5.
It can be derived by stellation (with path <1>) from the dodecahedron. The density of the stellation is 7.
